Question: What is a Japanese garden design about?

What are the main features of a Japanese garden?

Japanese gardens are characterized by: the waterfall, of which there are ten or more different arrangements; the spring and stream to which it gives rise; the lake; hills, built up from earth excavated from the basin for the lake; islands; bridges of many varieties; and the natural guardian stones.

Are Japanese Gardens low maintenance?

Japanese gardens are popular now because they fit well into small spaces. And they are perceived as being low-maintenance. We like flowers, colour, smells; constructs that have as little as possible to do with what is going on outside the garden boundaries.

What goes in a Japanese garden?

Hard landscaping can include gravel, rocks and stepping stones. Try tying pieces of bamboo together with twine to create Japanese-style fences. Encourage mosses to spread in nooks and crannies. Japanese gardens often showcase the different shades of green and moss is used in many Japanese temple gardens.
