Nourish the soul and restore the spirit in your own Japanese garden! This inspirational and photo-packed guidebook shows how to create the sense of harmony and balance that are so much a part of Zen philosophy. Every element that goes into the garden has meaning, along with its careful arrangement, and its use of natural and unobtrusive materials (like bamboo). Walls, fences, and paths provide security, beauty, and boundaries that separate and frame various areas. Boulders, stones, and gravel contrast with smooth, flowing ponds and rushing waterfalls. No detail goes unexplained--from adding koi and water plants to setting up viewing stations and putting up a teahouse. It will be a place of peace, restfulness, and emotional refreshment. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.
