When James Golden set out to create a wet prairie in western Jersey, he faced heavy clay, standing water, and a derelict woodland. Eschewing traditional approaches, he planted right into the matrix of weedy invasives, without mulching, amending the soil or spraying herbicide- unconventional methods Thomas Rainer and Claudia West call "a daring dance with nature."
Today, Golden's acclaimed Federal Twist is a lush riot of hardy grasses and perennials given structure by tall, architectural plants, and has been profiled in Gardens Illustrated, The New York Times, Rainer and West's Planting in a Post-Wild World, Claire Takacs's Dreamscapes, and Christopher Wood's Gardenlust.
