Dutch garden and landscape designer Piet Oudolf, a leading figure in the New Perennial planting movement, emphasizes plant structure as the most important aspect of a successful garden. Perennials – prized for their beauty throughout their life cycle – are used almost exclusively.

Oudolf challenges conventional approaches to gardening that rely on short-lived bursts of colour and constant maintenance and shows the delights of creating lasting, ecologically sound panoramas that relate to the landscape and the seasons.

Piet Oudolf. Landscapes in Landscapes is a glorious full-colourpublication which features twenty-three of Oudolf's most beautiful public and private gardens, including the widely acclaimed High Line and the Battery in New York City; Wisley, the RHS Garden in Surrey; the Pensthorpe Gardens in Norfolk; the Lurie Garden in Millennium Park in Chicago and Il Giardino delle Vergini at the 2010 Venice Biennale.

Noël Kingsbury's accessible text explains how each garden and the plants selected for it fit the specific environment. Oudolf's detailed plans provide inspiration and insight for all interested in both small personal gardens and large-scale public landscapes.
