Today we’re in Hopewell, New Jersey, visiting with Courtney and Denys Turner.

We have worked very hard to create hardy but beautiful perennial borders in our back and front gardens, à la Piet Oudolf—the naturalistic style or “new perennial movement.”

The back border is against a fence and gets a lot of sun most of the day. The soil is dry and sandy on the mound and heavy clay everywhere else.
