Filmtastic Fridays: Master Plantsman Piet Oudolf

Shake off the winter doldrums with a behind the scene's look at Piet Oudolf's bright and bold planting designs. The influential Dutch Master Plantsman has worked around the world, from Chicago's Lurie Garden to Scampston Hall in North Yorkshire, England. Famous for his bold drifts of all-season grasses and herbaceous perennials, Oudolf is considered one of the first planting designers to popularize large-scale perennial plantings in the public landscape.


From the description:

Piet Oudolf is a renowned landscape architect whose designs can be found all over the world. Oudolf's distinctive style has been described as: a thoughtful evocation of nature that emphasises the form, texture and natural harmony of plants and the result of decades of observation and work with plants, especially perennials.

Piet Oudolf works with the world's leading architects to design parks and public spaces. One of Oudolf's most famous designs is the High Line in New York City, a prestigious project in which an old industrial railway was transformed into a city park.
