  • Philosophy
    most Westerners could ever imagine There is much we can learn from it 3 Japanese gardens are not merely a specific category within the broader category of horticulture Japanese gardens are the broader category In Japan gardening is an extremely diverse topic that includes aspects of Art Architecture Science Engineering History Horticulture and Philosophy 4 The main purpose of a Japanese garden is to bring serenity and nature into our crowded lives They remind us of the natural landscape but in fact they are carefully controlled by man They are nature inspired but they do not grow naturally 5 In many ways the Western image of Japanese gardening is inaccurate The roles of religion and symbolism have been greatly exaggerated In reality the Japanese people have gardens for the same reason we do to bring nature into their lives Taste simplicity quality and natural patterns are all very important Over blown symbolism is not 6 Traditional Japanese residences are carefully integrated environments where the garden house and people all function together The building and the garden should feel like two halves of a whole The view from inside the home is very important The view from the street is not 7 The elements used to construct Japanese gardens include Rocks Water Trees Buildings Gates and Fences It is important to remember that the garden itself is a combination of elements no single one is most important 8 The design and construction of a Japanese garden are just the first steps in a very long journey The remainder of that journey consists of guiding the garden through pruning and grooming 100 years is a short time in the life of a Japanese garden We should not underestimate the importance of long term skilled care year after year for centuries 9 Japanese
