If there is such thing as a gardening superstar, then you can count both Piet Oudolf and Noel Kingsbury among them. From the High Line and Battery Park in New York to the Lurie Garden in Chicago, Oudolf is the man behind some of the most high-profile planting projects in the world. Kingsbury, meanwhile, has written no fewer than twenty books on planting and garden design.
"Planting: A New Perspective," the fourth book co-authored by Oudolf and Kinsbury, is the definitive resource for landscaping and gardening in the 21st century. As to be expected from Oudolf, the theme is one of collaborating with nature, rather than trying to control it. Filled with examples of the his signature, free-flowing gardens, the book features extensive plant charts and planting plans alongside lavish photography, making it an essential reference guide and source of inspiration. For landscape professionals or casual gardeners, this is required reading. Grab your copy via Amazon.
