A step-by-step guide to pond, dry, tea, stroll and courtyard gardens: practical advice, projects and plant directory, with over 275 photographs
The Japanese garden is a spiritual place inspired by zen, ancient mythology and the natural landscape. The prominence of this garden style in Japan has now extended to all parts of the globe. This book explores options for creating a Japanese garden. Each of the classic Japanese garden styles has its own section. Every one starts with an outline of the style and the planning considerations and design requirements. Three step-by-step projects then show how to create the essential features of each style. A specialist plant directory gives photographs and detailed descriptions of the various seasonal plants and their growth conditions and hardiness zones. This clear presentation of the authentic garden styles of Japan, including more than 275 illustrations, plans and photographs, gives all the practical knowledge that is required to bring each of the five gardens to life in your own outdoor space.
