Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This inspirational, photo-packed guidebook shows how to create a Zenlike, harmonious space, where every element has both a spiritual meaning and a practical purpose. Build walls, fences and paths that provide security and section off areas; contrast rough stones and gravel with flowing ponds and waterfalls; ass koi and water plants; and put up a teahouse.

Synopsis:

“The author discusses the function of cedar and bamboo fences, safety rails, retaining walls, gates, and tile roofs. In a chapter on rocks, boulders, and stones, he writes about their uses in bridges, walkways, and paths. Water is a large part of Japanese gardens, and Gustafson focuses on...ponds, waterfalls, and streams.”—Booklist.
