Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Home gardeners with a keen interest in design, as well as professional landscape designers, will find invaluable advice in this new approach. The book focuses on the general principles behind creating successful and beautiful plant combinations in both time and space — working with perennials in the context of trees, shrubs, and the surrounding landscape. The authors suggest looking across, into, and through the landscape. They ask the reader to consider the rhythms and connections in their designs, through such elements as echoes, linkages, and repetitions. More than just theory, Planting Design includes practical discussion of topics such as soil preparation, plant selection, and garden maintenance. Exceptional photographs show growth of a designed landscape over time, opening the gardener to new ways of seeing and thinking about their landscapes.

Book News Annotation:

Accomplished gardeners and garden and landscape designers will find a wealth of ideas and practical guidance in this book, which is well illustrated with color photos. Printed in an attractive oversize format (9.75x11.75") the volume discusses concepts of nature as model, ecology, habitats, spatial design, and consciously planting to achieve year- round show. The use of particular types of plants and the big issue of maintenance are the subjects of separate chapters. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

Piet Oudolf is a native of Holland and originally studied to be an architect. Instead of designing buildings he became the founder of New Wave planting, a movement which takes inspiration from nature but employs artistic skill in creating planting schemes. As a plantsman, his aim is to emphasize the form, texture, and natural harmony of plants, and as a skilled plant breeder, he creates new varieties for these and other specific design purposes. His style is the result of the influence of various horticultural traditions such as the combination of Dutch formality and naturalistic planting styles.Noël Kingsbury is a leading expert in contemporary naturalistic planting design. He contributes regularly to Hortus, Homes and Gardens, The English Garden, and the royal horticultural society's magazine, The Garden. Noël lectures regularly in the United States, and has always been firmly in the vanguard of new developments, playing a major role in popularizing a more naturalistic and sustainable planting style.
