Summary
"Before it was restored, the High Line was an untouched, abandoned landscape overgrown with wildflowers. Today it is much more than that: it's a central plaza, a cultural center, a walkway, and a green retreat in a bustling city that is free for all to enjoy. But above all else, it is a beautiful, dynamic garden with plantings designed by Piet Oudolf ... [This book] offers an in-depth view into the planting designs, plant palette, and maintenance of this landmark achievement"--Amazon.com
