Watson-Guptill Publications, 2003 - Gardening - 207 pages
There's a new American revolution brewing against traditional, English-inspired landscapes. Pioneered by renowned landscape designers James van Sweden and Wolfgang Oehme, it's called the New American Style, and it's easily recognized for its rich use of plants and lush ornamental grasses. In Gardening with Nature, James van Sweden -- who counts Oprah Winfrey and David Brinkley among his clients -- shows how to design, build, and plant the lavish, romantic gardens that are the hallmark of his innovative style. Brimming with over 250 gorgeous photographs, van Sweden embarks on an amazing garden tour that demonstrates his clever rationale behind specific plant choices and design decisions. Readers will learn, for example, how to create a wildflower meadow, block an unwanted view, select easy-to-grow plants for windy or shady areas, and much more. Brimming with sound advice, practical guidance, and hundreds of useful tips, this is the perfect source of inspiration for every creative gardener!
