The Battery Bosque: An Urban Oasis
The Battery Bosque is a unique 4-acre woodland garden at the heart of the horticultural master plan created by Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf in 2002. This guidebook tells the story of the garden's planning and installation and illustrates these gardens that contain a special beauty throughout each of the four seasons.
Each guidebook measures 8.5 x 5.875 inches and can easily fit in a coat pocket. 50 full-color pages take the reader on a tour through the gardens and include a detailed photo plant index. Indications regarding the seasonality and height of each plant allows for easy identification, and information about the plant's ideal growing conditions grants gardeners inspiration and a point of reference for their own gardens.
Printed on 100% recyclable, water-resistant, tear-free and "tree-free" YUPO paper, the guidebook exemplifies the sustainable design of The Battery and its horticultural master plan.
