Heaven is a garden, and similarly, a garden is heaven. Jan Johnsen brought heaven, beauty and tranquility to my own garden. She's the best! -John T. Mickel, Curator of Ferns Emeritus, New York Botantical Garden; Author of Ferns for American Gardens

She begins with an explanation of three simple words: simplicity, sanctuary and delight - the basis for creating gardens that inspire us and provide a place for reflection. With so many other good suggestions in this book as well, anyone who designs gardens should have this book on their resource shelf. -Vanessa Gardner Nagel, designer, author Director of Communications, Association of Professional Landscape Designers
Jan Johnsen touches my soul with her insights on gardens, as well as on living life. You'll be touched too as she teaches you how to create a divine, unhurried landscape with simplicity, sanctuary and delight. -Jim Peterson, Publisher, Garden Design Magazine
"Whether you are intending to create a lovely garden or just thinking about a future outdoor haven, Heaven is a Garden will help you see your backyard in a whole new light and reawaken an awareness of the wonders of Nature." -Kathy Jentz, Publisher of the Washington Gardener
When's the last time you read a gardening book cover to cover, all in one sitting? Up until a few weeks ago, my answer to that question would have been, "A gardening book? NEVER." But then I read "Heaven is a Garden." Cover to cover. All in one sitting. And then I read it again. I'll probably read it again - it's that captivating! This book is impossible to put down - partly due to the fascinating content, but also because Jan is a gifted storyteller whose choice of words and melodic phrasing beckon you in and invite you to stay. The bow on this exquisite gift of a book is the fact that the photographs are personal examples of Jan's gorgeous garden and landscape design work - fabulous! -- Gwen Holloway * "Heaven Is A Garden" Book Review *
