Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using native plants and "fitting" designs, Jensen advocated that gardens, parks, roads, playgrounds and cities should be harmonious with nature and its ecological processes - a belief which was to become a major theme of modern American landscape design. This volume stresses the many valuable lessons that Jensen's legacy holds for modern conservationists.

Synopsis:

Jens Jensen was one of America's greatest landscape designers and conservationists. Using native plants and "fitting" designs, he advocated that our gardens, parks, roads, playgrounds, and cities should be harmonious with nature and its ecological processes — a belief that was to become a major theme of modern American landscape design. In Jens Jensen: Maker of Natural Parks and Gardens, Robert E. Grese draws on Jensen's writings and plans, interviews with people who knew him, and analyses of his projects to present a clear picture of Jensen's efforts to enhance and preserve "native" landscapes.
