Planting the Natural Garden – Piet Oudolf & Hen Gerritsen
Piet Oudolf’s star has been in the ascendancy in the public awareness of gardens for the past decade or so. He maybe first came to a wider public consciousness via the planting of the High Line in New York in 2009 and followed up with the garden that he created for the Peter Zumthor Serpentine Pavilion in 2011 and then the commission for the large landscaped gardens at Bruton for Hauser and Wirth.
It is a style of gardening and planting that has been termed modern prairie planting or the New Perennial Movement as it has a loose style that often includes grasses and massed plantings of perennials.
This book is a revised version of the book first published in 1990 when Oudolf and Gerritsen, a plantsman and designer, were swimming against the tide of gardening styles of the time. This new book includes many more plant combinations and descriptions of new plants than that first edition did and could almost be used as a shopping list for creating your own Oudolf garden.
