Gardens of the High Line: Elevating the Nature of Modern Landscapes
Piet Oudolf & Rick Darke
The soul of a famous garden, revealed before it was restored, the High Line was an untouched, abandoned landscape overgrown with wildflowers. Today it is much more than that; it s a central plaza, a cultural centre, a walkway, and a green retreat in a bustling city that is free for all to enjoy. But above all else, it is a beautiful, dynamic garden with plantings designed by Piet Oudolf, one of the world's most extraordinary garden designers. Gardens of the High Line, by Piet Oudolf and Rick Darke, offers an in-depth view into the planting designs, plant palette, and maintenance of this landmark achievement. It reveals a four-season garden that is filled with native and exotic plants, drought-tolerant perennials, and grasses that thrive and spread. It also offers inspiration and advice to home gardeners and garden designers looking to recreate its iconic, naturalistic style. Featuring stunning photographs by Rick Darke and an introductionby Robert Hammond, the founder of the Friends of the High Line, this large-trim, photo-driven book is a must-have for anyone who appreciatesthe nature ofdesign. 320 pages.
