garden: take the highroad

highland3

We are heading back to New York in August for my cousin’s wedding. This time I will have the kids with me. There’s so much I want to do with them while we’re there. One of the things will be a visit to the High Line…the park that just opened on the old elevated railway line that runs through the meatpacking district. It’s designed by Piet Oudulf – I came across his wonderful work when we ran one of his gardens in Belle. His work treads an interesting line between reigning in nature with tightly clipped forms and wild meadows that play on texture and colour. The image below is from a house he landscaped in Haamstede.
