The Layered Garden: Design Lessons for Year-Round Beauty from Brandywine Cottage.
Culp, David.
The Layered Garden: Design Lessons for Year-Round Beauty from Brandywine Cottage.
Brandywine Cottage is David Culp's beloved two-acre Pennsylvania garden where he mastered the design technique of layering - interplanting many different species in the same area so that as one plant passes its peak, another takes over. The result is a nonstop parade of color that begins with a tapestry of heirloom daffodils and hellebores in spring and ends with a jewel-like blend of Asian wildflowers at the onset of winter. The Layered Garden shows you how to recreate Culp's majestic display. It starts with a basic lesson in layering - how to choose the correct plants by understanding how they grow and change throughout the seasons, how to design a layered garden, and how to maintain it. To illustrate how layering works, Culp takes you on a personal tour through each part of his celebrated garden: the woodland garden, the perennial border, the kitchen garden, the shrubbery, and the walled garden. The book culminates with a chapter dedicated to signature plants for all four seasons.
