Stonescaping - A Great Review from Bedford Magazine

Stonescaping - review by Jennifer Moore Stahlkrantz
I find the abundance of natural stone—the outcroppings, the ridges, the meandering walls—in our area just breathtaking.


If you’re drawn to it, as well, and looking to add dimension and resilience to your landscape, grab a copy of Mt. Kisco landscape designer Jan Johnsen’s new book The Spirit of Stone. Inside, she shows the many creative ways that stone and gravel can be used in a garden.


The tips and photos are inspiring. serenityinthegarden.blogspot.com.
