Pressestimmen

They succeed handsomely in presenting a clearly-reasoned approach to design. Garden If you want to understand the medium in which garden making of the future is going to work, you can find it all here in the illustrations. Oudolf is held to be one of the great horticultural innovators -- Fred Whitsey Daily Telegraph Due to the continuing interest in the subject, its superb illustrations, and informative text, it has become a classic. Lancashire Magazine

Synopsis

This gardening guide looks at the possibilities of using grass for decorative effect, not just in lawns and meadows, but also in borders, as background shrubs to enhance other plants and as a means of creating dramatic contrasts. The versatility of grass as a foliage plant is increasingly being realized with the popularity of naturalistic planting styles. Many more cultivars are now readily available as the fashion for using grasses has steadily gained momentum in Britain, Europe and the USA. As well as numerous ideas and guidance, the authors give detailed descriptions of a wide range of ornamental grasses, choose the most appropriate plants for a range of garden habitats, and direct the reader to the best varieties of grass for garden use.

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.

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.

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!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Very disappointing... 26. August 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I must say, I am astonished that this book has recieved the positive reviews that it has. I bought this book with the intent of gaining knowledge in the area of designing with grasses. I read it from start to finish and found that the entire text consisted of rambling, repetative, generalizations that were devoid of any substantial content. I was completely shocked that the authors would dare publish such wishy-washy material.
In addition, many of the photos are out of focus and the corresponding descriptions are often incomplete. The descriptions of specific grasses are very brief and many very popular grasses are not included at all.
I have never been more disappointed with a book purchase of any kind on any topic.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Just OK 17. August 2013
Von Cyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Was hoping for a more indepth look at individual grasses - their care and feeding. This book gave me some landscaping ideas, but was not as comprehensive as I would like. Still looking for such a book.
