Planting: A New Perspective
Piet Oudolf & Noel Kingsbury
Timber Press $39.95
“Piet Oudolf’s gardens are breathtaking to observe and hard to define. They are calm yet full of surprises, apparently effortless but complex to achieve, intimate while reaching out to the wider natural world.”
Considered one of the worlds most innovative garden designers, Oudolf is the leading figure in what has become known as the New Wave Planting, a movement that takes it’s inspiration from nature.
Having published many books about his designs, we now have a wonderful reference that shows gardeners and professionals how his gardens are made. With a detailed directory, we learn how Oudolf selects, groups, and combine plants with other elements to make his beautiful gardens.
Planting: A New Perspective is essential reading for anyone who is interested in creating enriched gardens that are sensitive to their surroundings, that support biodiversity, and nourish the spirit. This book has already become an invaluable part of my gardening vision.
