A Japanese garden is often laid out in accordance with strict rules whereby each component of the design has a specific meaning. In its original form, a Japanese garden was a meditation garden and later on, it was influenced by a love of the landscape.
Reconfiguring natural landscapes in the smallest space is still a priority in Japanese garden design.
Rocks, ponds and streams are essential components of a Japanese garden. Light and shadow impart an inner rhythm to the garden. A peaceful, contemplative place.
Japanese gardens have an effect not only because of their balanced and harmonious design, but also due to the sensible use of relatively small areas and spaces.
Even, if you don’t have a large garden, there are many possible ways of arranging the site to suit your own tastes.
