I enjoyed the story of the planning, the philosophy of choosing the plants, and the gardening aspects of Lurie Garden. I did not know about the garden, even though we park under it to get the the Art Institute. I always wondered what was up there but we had artwork to see. Now we have more artistic work to see.
There are a few beautiful plants in the second part of the book that I hope to find for our own garden.

Native plant purists will not be happy reading about Oudolf's blend of natives and horticultural plants, but I long to visit the Lurie Gardens, and I appreciate the mingling of plants for their year-round interest, suitability to the site and environmental benefits. I will return to this book again and again for inspiration for my own yard.

Visit the Lurie Garden for inspiration and then use this book as a guide to translate what you see to your own garden. Small enough to take with to read on the train ride too!
