‘A stunning display of Oudolf’s œuvre … Admirers of Oudolf’s work, and anyone interested in designing with perennials or in naturalistic planting, will find this book repays close attention and is a useful addition to their bookshelf’
Garden Design Journal UK
The leading figure in the New Perennial planting movement, Piet Oudolf emphasizes plant structure as most important. Perennials are used almost exclusively since he prefers lasting, ecologically sound panoramas that relate to the landscape and the seasons.
This glorious colour book features 23 of Oudolf’s most beautiful gardens, including the High Line and Battery in New York, Wisley (RHS), Lurie Garden, Millennium Park, Chicago and Il Giardino delle Vergini at the 2010 Venice Biennale.
Kingsbury’s text explains how each garden and the plants selected are in context and Oudolf’s detailed plans provide inspiration and insight for all.
Last year Piet Oudolf told me that, this is the best of my books – Warwick Forge
