An intimate look at the personal garden of the Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf, renowned for his plantings at the High Line in New York City, and Lurie Garden at Chicago’s Millennium Park. 

Hummelo—near the village of the same name in Gelderland in the eastern Netherlands—is visited by thousands of gardeners seeking inspiration each year. It is Piet Oudolf’s home, his personal garden laboratory, a former nursery run by his wife Anja, and the place where he first tested new designs and created the varieties of perennials that are now widely available. 

The book will appeal to readers who favour beautiful, biodiverse, and ever-changing plantings: seed heads, grasses, sedges, and winter silhouettes. They will be drawn into its pages by lush photography, often demonstrating how Oudolf views his own work, and providing rare glimpses into his daily life. 

Dimensions: 22.9cm x 17.1cm. Paperback. 416 pages.
