  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
Piet Oudolf's gardens excite the senses and stir the emotions. Representing a giant step forward from the conventional color-themed border, this new approach to gardening gives just as much emphasis to form, texture, light, and movement as it does to color. Written in collaboration with Nol Kingsbury, Designing with Plants is an informative and visually breathtaking study of Piet Oudolf's planting theory and practice, and it provides all the advice necessary to create the same effects in your own garden.

This is such a fabulous book!
Even if you couldn't read ( My son when he was little) this is a book to love, the pictures of the gardens and plants are stunning!
The information in the book is amazing, understandable and refreshing.
Anything Piet Oudolf and/ or Noel Kingsbury bring out is my favorite!
What a team!
