CLOCKWISE FROM RIGHT: Serene resting places invite contemplation in Piet Oudolf's ethereal gardens. • Spirited borders are full of the plantsman's characteristic palette of soft-hued perennials and drifts of ornamental grasses. Here, thick clumps of white meadow sweet (or mead wort) contrast with a burst of exuberant salvia. • The back of the house overlooks an intricate boxwood parterre and the broad, sloping lawns of 18 th -century Capability Brown–designed parkland. • A hedge opening in the Walled Garden offers a view of the fountain. • Beyond, Oudolf's masterpiece evolves as a joyous scene of modern 'Prairie Gardening' comprising swaths of different grasses and perennials. The naturalized planting creates an elongated season of interest during which every leaf, flower head, and stem are as important as its color and scent. 82 | M AY/J U N E 2 0 1 8
