How do you give a garden good bones? Plant a painterly landscape, and in late autumn and winter it will be as beautiful as at the height of summer. This week we’ll show you how:

Above: In designer Piet Oudolf’s own garden in Hummelo, he planted low-growing late-season grasses and perennials. For more about the planting scheme see Required Reading: How to Recreate Piet Oudolf’s Painterly Landscapes.
