My Garden throughout the Changes of general Attitudes and of Climate

Peter Janke: Mein Garten im Wandel

Ecological / Low-Maintenance / Stylish

Mein Garten im Wandel des Zeitgeistes und des Klimas / My Garden throughout the Changes of general Attitudes and of Climate (Book only available in German language)

Gardens are constantly undergoing changes, expecially due to seasonal alterations. But future confronts us with further questions: How can we deal with increasing global warming? Can we do more to help insects survive? What if the groundwater level keeps falling or if there will be a growing shortage of water? How can I tend my garden in such a way that I will be able to do it, even when I get older? Will my garden, as it is, still look beautiful when it continues developing? And how are we supposed to assess, handle and prepare for the multiple and complex transformation processes in a garden?

GartenTräume – Article „Fasanerie Palace“

P.74 bis P.77

In the spring edition 2017 of the magazine GartenTräume the author Kathrin Foerst presents the newest public garden by Peter Janke. In the historic setting of Fasanerie Palace (Eichenzell near Fulda) Peter Janke designed a strictly geometric garden with accentuated natural planting. He combines his design concept with two steel cultures specifically created for this garden by the minimal artist Stefan Siebers from Cologne.
