Book Description

27 May 2009
After giving historical context, this book explores the main Japanese gardening styles: pond gardens, dry gardens, tea gardens, stroll gardens and courtyard gardens. It provides all of the essential information on standard features, composition and key themes of each of the five styles, and then for each one presents the planning and construction of a sequence of three project features, resulting in a final garden composition in that style. The plant directory that follows details the various types of plants, while the final section explains the maintenance of the Japanese garden including a practical calendar of care. Whether you want to develop a stroll garden in a large natural space, or small dry garden with a pathway, raked gravel and minimal plants and rocks, A Practical Guide to Japanese Gardening is your essential companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book 4 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When I first looked at this book I noticed there was a review on it, so decided to read it. It turned out to be a friend of mine and she lent me her copy. I was so impressed with it I wanted my own. I have a few books on the subject and all gave me ideas and inspiration. However, this one helps you to bring those ideas to fruition in an easy to understand why, perfect for a complete novice like me. Can't recommend this book highly enough.
