Format: Paperback
I first met the landscape architects James Van Sweden and Wolfgang Oehme in the early eighties in Washington, DC while in school as a designer and working for a contractor. I believe that they have done more for the field of landscape design than anyone for decades previously. Their extensive and creative use of ornamental grasses and perennials has transformed garden design in this country. Their gardens in and around Washington DC area are like no others. This is really contemporary design with an emphasis on the year round beauty of all plants. The book is by far the BEST GARDEN BOOK YOU WILL EVER OWN. The photography is also the best of any garden book I have ever seen (see also Ken Druse). I cannot say enough about these two landscape architect or the remarkable book. I have the first edition (which I am having trouble locating, so I might have to buy the new one). Trust me on this one.

I am absolutely positive that you cannot go wrong with this book, or any other by these two incredible designers. With an emphasis on ornamental grasses and very "naturalistic" design styles that are beautiful year round, you'll have a hard time putting this one down. Photographs are absolutely beautiful!! You will definitely not be dissapointed!!!

This is a book I had and liked in the past, but it is out of print. I had loaned it and lost it. I was very happy to get another copy again. The book has quite a few construction drawings that are very useful. It came very quickly from the seller.

Finally a great book with lots of details for gardens big and small and provides for a lot of information on trees, shrubs, plants and flowers that are native to the the mid-atlantic, northeast region. We're going to get a lot of use from this book.
