5.0 von 5 Sternen The most complete book you could buy for ornamental grasses.
An excellent text on the subject of ornamental grasses. The authors acknowledge that ornamental grasses are only a part of the landscape, and they address the other types of plants that work well with them.
They approach the subject from a landscape design frame of reference, how to work grasses into your garden. This information is usually only available through...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not a great reference book
I'm writing this review to balance out all of the 'great' reviews this book has received. The book is okay, but it is not a great reference book. It has several faults:
First, the book is suppose to be about grasses, yet 25% of the text discusses garden flowers.
Second, many of the photos are cluttered or blurred. There were few species specific photos that...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Gardening with Grasses (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I'm writing this review to balance out all of the 'great' reviews this book has received. The book is okay, but it is not a great reference book. It has several faults:
First, the book is suppose to be about grasses, yet 25% of the text discusses garden flowers.
Second, many of the photos are cluttered or blurred. There were few species specific photos that displayed a single clear crisp grass variety.
Third, the book rambles and takes the long way to discribe a simple observation. Some readers will enjoy this style, but it's not for me. I want something that gets to the point.
Fourth, the species reference (called 'Selected Plant Catalogue'), is sparse and dated. For example, Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Overdam' is covered in just three words, 'outstanding variegated form'. Gee ... somehow I was expecting more information. There is not one photo of Overdam in the entire book. Likewise, there is no photo of Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue'. These are two very popular grasses to have been leftout.
On the positive side, there are some neat winter photographs of grasses, and the book contains some useful information (but it is difficult to find it when you need it).
This is the kind of book that you're suppose to sit and read from cover to cover. A pleasure reading book. Not what I do with garden books, I read them rather like an encyclopedia - and this is not a good choice for a reference book.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Gardening with Grasses (Gebundene Ausgabe)
An excellent text on the subject of ornamental grasses. The authors acknowledge that ornamental grasses are only a part of the landscape, and they address the other types of plants that work well with them.
They approach the subject from a landscape design frame of reference, how to work grasses into your garden. This information is usually only available through your own trial and error. King and Oudolf take out the guesswork. What puts this book a step above all others about the same subject is that it informs its readers how to plant in combination with other perennial flowers. The 161 color photos and very thorough coverage of ornamental grasses and their companions make this the most complete package you could buy for incorporating these graceful, ornamental features into your design.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent explanation and examples of mature plantings, 11. November 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Gardening with Grasses (Gebundene Ausgabe)
We are a Landscape Design/Build firm specilizing in using ornamental grasses in our design concepts. We have found this book to be an excellent sales tool to show clients how the mature grasses will look in their L/S design. The text is extremely informative and gives a good basic knowledge of grasses to the novice. The photos are stunning.

This book covers all the different types of ornamental grasses; from choosing cultivars to the many ways they can be used in your garden. The best book I have seen in this area!
