Broken And Cut Stones In A Japanese Garden

Posted on


Thanks for reading my blog.

Earlier in the week I posted on Stones and Rocks in Japanese gardens. These were all positive ingredients but of course as with all things positive there is usually a negative too. In Japanese gardens there are three bad stones ( see earlier posting) but also broken and cut Stones are severley frowned upon. In short they shouldn’t be in a Japanese garden either. Also, in design, you should never use stones with larger tops than bases.There are one or two exceptions to this rule that I will cover in future posts.

As ever, if you have a question or comment I would love to hear from you and don’t forget there are many other Japanese garden enthusiasts who read this blog and are very knowledgeable, so between us we can hopefully help you.

I came across a very good Japanese garden website run by a good man called Spencer take a look it’s at

Have a good day.
