Garden design in climates with high snowfall
I am searching for information on garden design for places with high snowfall. By this I do not mean plants and structures that are resistant against the frost and snowload, but design ides that make the most of the amazing features snow can bring into a garden environment - such as contrasts to dark coniferous trees, shadow on snow surfaces or dwarf conifers that form "mysterious" shapes and structures under a snowcover. Would anyone be aware of any literature on the use of snow as a "Garden element" - or know anyone, who would have designed a garden to make most of its beauty under a snowcover?
This would be of great help.
Thanks and best wishes
