Sarah Price’s Airy Planting Style

4/05/2011

Excuse me for a moment while I gush over the prettiness that characterizes Sarah Price’s distinctive planting style.  While it is reminiscent of the mixed up style of Tom Stuart Smith or Christopher Bradley-Hole I love how it maintains a unique graceful feminine airiness.

It has just enough repetition to keep it all pulled together, but instead of building up the border height gradually (as prescribed by more traditional English garden design) and clumping plants, Sarah spreads it all out and puts tall with small to let the height and the openness of clear stems take center stage.

I am studying this style because I absolutely love the look for both a country and town garden.  What do you see that defines this look?

    In her interview with Gardens Illustrated, Sarah states that she was struck by the planting designs of Dutch plantsman Piet Oudolf, Coming from a fine arts background her response was ‘ Wow!, Its like painting with plants!” Piet has contributed to several planting design books about his planting inspiration, the horticulture community calls it ‘New Wave’. here is his website:
