Garden design series - Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.

"When I finally got it to play, yes it was a good review. But I don't believe it was the atco 22sv.
He looked like he lifted 47kg a little too easy, plus the engine looks different.
The engine looks like the 43kg atco 19se."

"There used to be izys that had a roller a long while back. It could be one of those as they do last a long time especially if used on one garden!"

"OK get it now. Would you say that mulching when the growth is slower and removing when faster is the way around the cutting frequency issue?"
