Thanks for reading my blog. I just want to give you a very simplistic overview of some of the design principles of Japanese Gardens. One of the most crucial principles is allowing the garden to follow the lines and forms of nature. You will nevr for example find a square pond in a Japanese garden, because in nature square ponds don’t exsist! The placement of stones must be made to appear as natural as possible, nothing must look manufactured.
To find out more about Japanese gardens go to: www.japzengardens.org
Tomorrow, I will be posting information about ‘space’ management and balance within a Japanese garden.
Have a good day!
