The quiet global revolution in landscaping and gardening towards ecologically sound gardens was really started by this guy - quite brilliant, and this Thames and Hudson publication, the first monograph made on Oudolf, is a book worthy of him.
Showcasing 23 of Piet Oudolf's most outstanding gardens, Piet Oudolf: Landscapes in Landscapes highlights the Dutch garden designer's sensitive approach to gardening, which emphasises the life of plants all year round. Featured gardens include the High Line and Battery in New York, the RHS Garden in Surrey, the Pensthorpe Gardens in Norfolk, the Lurie Garden in Chicago and Il Giardino delle Vergini at the Venice Biennale in 2010.

Meet Piet Oudolf The Dutch nurseryman and garden and landscape designer is renowned as a leading figure in the New Perennial planting movement, a position he assumed through his naturalistic philosophy towards gardening. Emphasising the seasonal life of plants rather than temporary bursts of colour that require constant maintenance, Oudolf's approach to gardening champions ecologically sound gardens that respond to their landscape and the seasons.
