Heaven is a Garden



Designing Serene Spaces for Inspiration and Reflection

By Jan Johnsen

Why do some gardens make us feel so wonderful, relaxed and refreshed? Professional landscape designer Jan Johnsen shares her passion for creating serene, enticing gardens that become outdoor havens for our spirit. Heaven is a Garden is a thoroughly entrancing garden design book that you will refer to over and over. Johnsen draws on her 40 years of experience to explore far-ranging ideas, some new, some ancient-- like, why a gate facing East is considered auspicious, why a sheltered corner is so alluring and why certain trees can impart a special atmosphere. Richly photographed with inspiring landscapes, this guide is written with thoughtful prose and practical advice. It reveals how, with a new/old design approach, you can create a delightful outdoor haven that everyone will enjoy.
