Any backyard has the potential to refresh and inspire if you know what to do. Landscape architect Jan Johnsen will be discussing techniques from her new book, Gardentopia: Design Basics for Beautiful Outdoor Spaces.
Takes place at the Croton Free Library. No pre-registration required.
This program is brought to you by the Green Living Series, a partnership between the Croton Conservation Advisory Council and Teatown.
Jan Johnsen began her professional life in Japan in a landscape architecture office. She came back to the U.S. and worked for a Versailles-trained French gardener where she learned European horticulture techniques. She has been a principal in a landscape design /build firm, Johnsen Landscapes & Pools, based in Westchester, NY, for over 30 years. Her award-winning natural design approach is evident in the landscapes that she shares in her books, Heaven is a Garden, The Spirit of Stone, and the new 2019 book, Gardentopia.
