Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Living with Japanese Gardens shows how to capture and integrate an authentic Japanese aesthetic into any landscape plan. Japanese gardens affirm our connection with the natural world through the integration of the garden with the home, enriching the total living space. From the artistry with which the gardener places plants, rocks, and water with the viewer's perspective in mind, to the way in which a Japanese garden can make one feel safe and sheltered, their mystery and appeal are now wildly popular. From the hundreds of public Japanese gardens around the world, to common garden shops and nurseries that now regularly stock stone lanterns, bamboo plants, water basins, and koi pond accessories, its easy to see how a Japanese garden will inspire and nurture. Gong and Parramore show how anyone can create a beautiful Japanese garden, whether they have a flat suburban lot, a small balcony, a rolling hillside, or a few small pots. Chapters cover these topics and more: Creating a reflecting pool Ikebana-inspired gardens Interior rooms that invite nature inside Creating a low-maintenance Japanese garden in a courtyard Using the principle of wabi sabi in the landscape A backyard that highlights the changing of the seasons Front door gardens
