Great Blog Posts About Piet Oudolf

Yvonne Cunnington at Country Gardener has a beautiful picture of her Piet Oudolf Inspired Garden. She writes: "The lack of fussiness, tossing out high maintenance deadheading and staking, combining grasses with naturalistic perennials - these are all the qualities that drew me to his style, which happens to be tailor-made for country gardens."

Yolanda Elizabet at Bliss has pictures of Piet Oudolf's private garden. She writes: "Last week I went to Piet Oudolf to look at his nursery and private garden. I had paid him a visit before, last October, but that was during the Grass Days (held annually) when several other nurseries sell their stuff at Piet's place too."

James Golden at View from Federal Twist writes of Piet Oudolf's next New York City project, the Highline. He writes: "The Highline, an abandoned elevated rail line on the West Side of Manhattan, is being converted into a linear park and trail. For the first time in New York City, this innovative park will introduce Piet Oudolf's work on a large scale. While his plantings for the Memorial Gardens in Battery Park are a successful and attractive feature of Manhattan's southern tip, the Highline is a much more ambitious and challenging project that promises to attract widespread attention."

Thanks for those links. I have one of Oudolf's books, "Designing With Plants". It has been an inspiration to look at the long term vision for our garden differently.

I enjoyed reading the article and have that style but didn't know it. I have started buying plants that don't need deadheading. I am currently making a list of new plants to put at my new home--and the list is all maintenance free plants. They put forth a long bloom time but aren't fussy.

Thanks for the links. I enjoyed visiting the Piet Oudolf--designed garden in Chicago last fall, Lurie Garden, and posted a few pics from it. Fall was a great time to see it.

Pam,

Thank you for sharing your post. I've never visited the gardens in Chicago--your photos are great.
