A Path Through the Japanese GardenBook - 2000
What is a Japanese garden? Japanese gardens are about experience--about feeling the way the rocks and plants relate and about understanding their deeper relationship. Just as you instinctively find the place in a room where you feel comfortable, you will learn to trust your instincts about where a rock should be placed in a garden. In A Path Through the Japanese Garden, we learn about the natural world in a philosophical way, but it is also a practical book that provides step-by-step guidance in designing and creating a garden. Contents include the principles of Japanese garden construction; adaptable garden plans for any space or size garden; explanations of Japanese construction and pruning techniques; information on plants, flowers, trees, shrubs, and water features; and 200 color photos and diagrams.
