American Public Landscapes

If you’re a fan of parks and gardens and planning a visit to Chicago, USA, or for anyone interested in American landscape architecture, I've just come across a great website which is the “legacy project” about Jens Jensen (1860-1951) who helped create the “Prairie” style of municipal parks and private gardens in the early 20th century. The site has biography, drawings and photos, plus links to other sites, describing several of his related works and other online newsletters for further research.
I found this site from a reference on Jane Berger’s excellent blog “Garden Design Online”, which has articles covering American gardens, events, books, magazines etc.
