Japanese Zen Rock Gardening

"It is an extraordinary vision – a stone garden is a contradiction in terms. But this is because it is a vision, and it demands attention." - Donald Richie (1924-2013)

Zen Rock Gardens defy the definition commonly thought of as a garden in almost every manner speaking. There are no places with row after row of lush trees and shrubs, a gazebo to gather in or even no pond filled with fascinating koi fish. Nor are there fields of grass, just sand, gravel, strategically placed rocks and plants utilized as accents, after all the focal point of a japanese zen rock garden are the rocks themselves. Before learning how you may design and create a rock garden of your own, it’s crucial to understand how this unique landscaping style has come to be and what fundamental philosophy is behind its creation.
