Naturalistic Planting Design The Essential Guide [9780993389269]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Naturalistic planting design offers an exciting alternative to traditional garden making. Rich in plants, sustainable and good for the environment, naturalistic gardens are also beautiful, uplifting places that resonate with the energy of the natural world - but they can be challenging to get right.

In this seminal book, leading exponent of the technique Nigel Dunnett shares his peerless ecological and horticultural wisdom and fascinating working methods to ensure success with every project. By following a simple set of rules and principles in a unique `Planting Design Toolkit' discover how to read the landscape and create `designed plant communities' that are layered to sustain interest throughout the year. Learn how to design planting that captures the spirit of nature, fosters immersive, emotionally engaging experiences and reduces the need for maintenance.

The information is in-depth, practical and generously supported by a wealth of case studies, illustrations, plans and diagrams. This is the essential go-to guide for anyone wishing to join the adventure and plant the naturalistic way.


AUTHOR:

Nigel Dunnett is one of the world's leading voices on naturalistic planting design. He creates gardens and public landscapes that teem with plants and wildlife, bring multiple environmental benefits and enrich people's lives. Notable examples include the Beech Gardens and High Walk at the Barbican Centre in London (winner of the Landscape Institute's Planting Design Award 2018 and Fellows' Award 2018 for most outstanding project) and the London 2012 Olympic Park which first changed our perceptions about public planting. Nigel is dedicated to bringing his ideas and methodology to a wide audience: as ambassador of the RHS campaign `Greening Grey Britain'; Professor of Planting Design and Vegetative Ecology at Sheffield University; and award-winning designer of show gardens at RHS Chelsea Flower Show (Gold Medal 2013) and Hampton Court Flower Show. He is author of several books on his specialist subjects and lectures at universities, design schools and plant societies throughout the world.
