Staff Reviews


This seminal book started a gardening revolution, the New Perennial movement, when it was first published in 2003. Dutch designer Piet Oudolf (the High Line, Battery Park) champions a naturalistic approach to home and public garden design, emphasizing the use of hardy perennials and grasses that produce landscapes that look natural and organic no matter the season. This revised edition includes beautiful new photography and updated plant lists, making it more valuable and inspirational than ever.

Description


“If the world of gardening has rock stars, Piet Oudolf qualifies as Mick Jagger, David Bowie, and Prince rolled into one.” —Gardenista

The original publication of Planting the Natural Garden ushered in a revolution in landscape design: the New Perennial Movement. Spearheaded by internationally renowned designer Piet Oudolf, and incisively articulated by the late plantsman and designer Henk Gerritsen, it transformed private and public spaces with its emotionally resonant, naturalistic use of hardy perennials and grasses.

Now this classic has been expanded and updated to include scores of new plants and combinations. Packed with practical information and visual inspiration, Planting the Natural Garden zeroes in on the New Perennial Movement’s power to move us, making its distinctive plant palette available to all. For enthusiasts of these vibrant landscapes, it is an essential text; for gardeners who love the dreamy moods and colors that Oudolf and Gerritsen celebrate, it’s the key to a magic kingdom of garden beauty.
