This photo is of the Entry Garden Walk. It was designed in consultation with Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf to demonstrate the New Wave style. Perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees were carefully selected for their architectural form, texture, autumn colour and winter silhouette. Planting is done in naturalistic waves that form a sophisticated meadow. Photo looking southwest towards the Arrival Courtyard (at the end, to the right).
