Review

"The Spirit of Stone is overflowing with both inspiration and instruction on how to use stone creatively in the landscape. Jan Johnsen, a renowned landscape designer,focuses in on the soulfulness, authenticity, beauty, and practicality of stonework in an outdoor setting. Filled with practical tips and outstanding photos, The Spirit of Stone is a delightful celebration of the versatility of this solid, durable rock." - Fran Sorin, author, Digging Deeper


In the same loving and passionate spirit  she brought garden and design lovers Heaven is a Garden, Jan Johnsen now brings us The Spirit of Stone.  This book provides insights and photos of every possible way to use stone in your garden: as accents, as art, as walls,as drainage, as steps, with plants, or for paths.  When she was a college student in Kyoto,Japan, Johnsen developed a true appreciation for stone accents and how they can unify a design without distracting from the overall space. In The Spirit of Stone, she shares her appreciation and design insights with readers. - Jim Peterson, Publisher, Garden Design magazine


Celebrated garden author and landscape designer, Jan Johnsen has sifted her sophisticated natural stone expertise into a clearly written and companionable guide to stone gardening success.  Readers will be rewarded with time tested methods to design and build with stone and a personal tour of rock gardens throughout the world from this world-renowned landscape design expert.  I predict Spirit of Stone will be treasured by beginners and garden experts alike  - Miriam Goldberger, author, Taming Wildflowers


 From rock-solid tips on the practical aspects of creating stone walkways and the like, to fascinating insights into why we are so drawn to such structures, Jan Johnsen leaves no stone unturned in introducing readers to the wonderful world of masonry. Her marriage of hardscape and horticulture assures The Spirit of Stone rock-star status on your gardening bookshelf. - David Beaulieu, Landscaping Expert for About.com  

 

"As a horticulturist, I must have seen a thousand gardens and not one stone.Fortunately, after reading The Spirit of Stone, I now have "rock awareness" as Jan calls it and I can now see - I even went back to photos I took -- that the stones were there all along."  Peggy Riccio, Gardening Products Review
