The Royal Mile
Text by Olof Koekebakker, Jacqueline van der Kloet.
The highlight of the inaugural Garden and Landscape Architecture Triennial in Apeldoorn is The Royal Mile, a mile-long stretch of planted perimeter designed by 10 of the leading landscape designers in Europe: Wilko Karmelk, Helen Lewis, Fleur van Zonneveld, Jacqueline van der Kloet, Christine Orel, Christian Meyer, Ursula Gräfen, Jane Schul, Julie Toll, Christopher Bradley-Hole, Anita Fischer, Eric Ossart and Arnaud Maurières. The Royal Mile is divided into two parts. The first is a perennials border in muted pastel shades by Jacqueline van der Kloet, one of the Netherlands' most renowned garden designers and planting specialists. The second part features more vividly colored summer-flowering annuals and bulb varieties. This well-illustrated volume details the featured designs with planting schemes, photographs of the flowers and plants and interviews with each of the designers.
