Wolfgang Oehme is my father, so I am honored to help spread information about his new book. So please read on.

Announcing the new book: Between Garden Grasses: Wolfgang Oehme and his Extraordinary Gardens in the New World by Stefan Leppert.

Green Harmony Living feels privileged to be the exclusive US retailer of this unique, just released German language book about Wolfgang Oehme's life and work as a preeminent landscape architect. Hot off the press in January 2008, this book chronicles the professional journey of Wolfgang Oehme. From his childhood in war torn Germany, to his postwar forays around Europe, to his giant leap to the east coast of the US, to his remarkable solo career designing gardens, to his highly successful partnership with James van Sweden with their landscape architecture firm Oehme, van Sweden & Associates, Inc., and ultimately to his successful solo projects in his German homeland and the US.

The books 144 pages are packed with 225 impressive photos of people, dreamlike gardens, drawings, Wolfi plants, and much more. The books' many photos make this book a worthy show book for your coffee table, even if the German language is not in your lexicon.

Wolfgang will personally autograph your copy if you wish, and shipping is free!!!
