9780711227507: Ornamental Grasses: Wolfgang Oehme and the New American Garden

Wolfgang Oehme, in partnership with James Van Sweden, has been one of the most influential garden designers of the last thirty years. Together they have spearheaded the revolutionary garden style known as the New American Garden. Encompassing the simple beauty and grandeur of the prairie, the New American Garden is defined by large sweeps of herbaceous perennials and grasses, in contrast to such previous conventions as vast sterile lawns, clipped shrubs and annuals. This book is the first to chronicle the professional journey of Wolfgang Oehme. From his childhood in war torn Germany and his postwar forays around Europe, the scene shifts to the eastern US and Oehme's remarkable career as a garden designer, his highly successful partnership with James van Sweden with their landscape architecture firm Oehme, van Sweden & Associates, Inc., and ultimately to his successful solo projects in his German homeland and the US. Lauded as a 'garden book of the year' in the original German edition, the book is bursting with dreamlike gardens, original drawings and observations. Of considerable interest to gardeners wishing to follow Oehme's lead, a final section illustrates a selection of 'Wolfi plants', the most beloved and characteristic ingredients of this great designer's work.

Recensione:

A good example of how the native-plant movement is affecting more mainstream designers is that of Oehme-van Sweden Associates in the United States. Both Wolfgang Oehme and James van Sweden, the founders of this highly successful partnership, trained as landscape architects after originally studying in other disciplines — van Sweden as an architect and Oehme (who was born in Germany) as a horticulturalist. The two men have always been critical of the vast areas of sterile lawn and fiercely clipped shrubs that are such a feature of the American landscape. Instead they have used large drifts of ornamental grasses and perennials to create a quilted look, although in their private garden work they developed a much greater level of complexity. In their 'classic' work there was no intermingling of species, and much of the visual effect was gained from using large monocultural blocks. The practice is, however, now changing its approach to planting design, through younger project managers and partners developing their own style, which often involves a much greater use of native vegetation and more subtle intermingling of plant varieties.

From Planting Design: Gardens in Time and Space by Noel Kingsbury and Piet Oudolf

An authoritative chronicle of the work of one of America's most influential plantsmen, best known in the context of Oehme Van Sweden, the design duo who greened Canary Wharf and who helped to popularise prairie planting, the swathesof the perennials and grasses that now cloak our landscapes and gardens. Still a fiercely debated topic, the section on Oehme's favourite plants should at least settle some arguments over garden-worthy grasses. ( Daily Telegraph)

Not a guide to ornamental grasses but a chronicle of a famous maverick plantsman, there's much to enjoy. ( BBC Gardens Illustrated)

If you are a plant-aholic and cannot resist buying one of everything in the garden centre, Ornamental Grasses by Stefan Leppart could change your life. ( Limited Edition, South Worcestershire & Cotswolds)

A must for anyone who has a dull expanse of lawn and longs for something better. ( Irish News)

Descrizione libro FRANCES LINCOLN, 2009. LEGATURA EDITORIALE. Condizione libro: NUOVO. Wolfgang Oehme is one of the most important garden designers of the last 30 years. In partnership with James Van Sweden, who contributes an essay to this book, he ushered in the revolutionary garden style known as the New American Garden. Eschewing previous conventions such as vast lawns, clipped shrubs, and dreary beds of annuals, the New American garden embodies the simple beauty and grandeur of the prairie, defining itself with large sweeps of herbaceous perennials and grasses. The feeling of sheer beauty and calmness that pervades Oehme's gardens is a reminder of our connection to nature. "Ornamental Grasses" chronicles Oehme's professional journey, from his childhood in war-torn Germany to his immense success in the United States, all the while exploring his remarkable career, both solo and in partnership with Van Sweden. Over 200 gorgeous photographs depict dreamlike gardens, "Wolfi" plants, people, and much more. Pagg. 143, cm 24x26, rilegato. Codice libro della libreria 9780711227507
