Daily Garden: Piet’s (as in Oudolf) Office Garden

This is the office garden of famed designer (and one of my personal design inspirations)  Piet Oudolf.

As a designer, I really admire such an organized and inspiring place of work.  My studio and garden expose my constant experiments and half thought out craziness where as this seems to indicate a designer that knows what he needs at hand to get his job done.  (not that I don’t but really, this is just so organized!). To me is it so beautiful and functional and I would love to have this kind of garden at my fingertips.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Amazing rich textures and color. Do you happen to know what those 6 rectangular pillar like structures are…maybe shaped boxwood, or vine covered concrete?

      Matti – I just looked at the image at a much bigger scale than I can upload on this site…and while I can’t tell for sure what they are, I can say with certainty that they are some sort of deciduous shrub/ tree that has been shaped to be rectangular…..my guess is privet….but I am not sure.

    I’m soooooooo with you on this one, Rochelle. I’ve been reading Piet a lot this winter AND musing over my office view, or lack thereof.
