A leading figure in the New Wave Planting movement, Piet Oudolf emphasizes plant structure as the most important aspect of a successful garden. Form and texture are valued as much as colour, and perennials--prized for their beauty throughout a natural life cycle--are used almost exclusively. Oudolf challenges conventional approaches to gardening that rely on short-lived bursts of colour and constant maintenance and shows the delights of working with versatile, expressive perennials to create lasting, ecologically sound panoramas that relate to the greater landscape and the shifting seasons. This glorious full-colour volume is being developed in conjunction with renowned graphic designer Irma Boom and will feature twenty-five of Oudolf's most beautiful public and private gardens, including the High Line and the Battery in New York City; the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve and Gardens in Norfolk, England; the Trentham Estate in Staffordshire, England; Scampston Hall in North Yorkshire, England; ABN Amro corporate offices in Amsterdam; the Dream Park in Enkoping, Sweden; and his own perpetually evolving garden in Hummelo, The Netherlands.
