Overview

One of Americas greatest landscape designers and conservationists, Jensen used native plants to introduce the influential Prairie style of landscape architecture. In Siftings, Jensen shares his memories of "wandering in many lands" and his life in the heart of Middle America. His recollections—like his designs—express a love of natural landscapes and regional cultures. As he sifts through a lifetime of ideas about gardens, cities, towns and parks, Jensen makes an eloquent case for a natural style of American landscape.

Editorial Reviews

American Horticulturist

Jensen was a giant of his time. Nowhere is that more evident than in reading Siftings... Technically not a garden book, it is more about the philosophies of a lifetime devoted to gardens and plants, but one with such insights that it should be looked into when the world is too much with us, late and soon.
