By Piet Oudolf and Rick Darke
Before it was restored, the High Line was an untouched, abandoned landscape overgrown with wildflowers. The dynamic garden today evokes that urban wilderness thanks to the planting designs of Piet Oudolf, one of the world’s most extraordinary garden designers.
This book is a field guide, a how-to guide, and a celebration of the High Line’s horticultural landscape. It offers an in-depth view into the designs and “palette” that went into the plantings to create a drought-tolerant, ever-changing, four-season garden. It also offers inspiration and advice for home gardeners and garden designers to recreate the High Line’s iconic, naturalistic style. This large-trim, photo-driven book is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the influence of nature on design.
