Item Details

"When it was first published, Planting the Natural Garden--the first book by Piet Oufolf--was the start of the now immensely popular New Perennial Movement. Since then, Piet Oudolf has become one of the most iconic and groundbreaking designers of our time, responsible for some of the world's most important gardens, including the High Line, the Lourie Garden, the Battery, and Pottersfield. Fans of Piet Oudolf will delight in this revised edition of Planting the Natural Garden. Packed with plant information, new photography, and an introduction from Noel Kingsbury, it includes hundreds of eye-catching plant combinations, with an emphasis on the use of themed plantings that create mood and evoke emotion. Also included are plant lists and instructions for placing specific plants in particular habitats, as well as complete growing requirements." -- (Source of summary not specified)
