Garden Photo of the Day - Before and After

I am a landscape designer by profession and a writer by avocation (see my book, Heaven is a Garden).   I love to share what I do to inspire others to try their hand at working with the earth.

I also love rock outcrops and show them off if I can...rocks resonate and 'ground' us in the most subtle way.

Here is a recent project - 2 weeks ago.

Jan Johnsen - During


Jan Johnsen - After

After this, I placed an 'Orange Dream' Japanese Maple in the bare, open space to the right of the steps...a work in progress.
