The tranquility of a classic Japanese garden is yours to enjoy at home or in the office by marrying the Zen art of Bonsai with the popular container garden movement!
The container itself can be an old pot, ceramic bowl, or just about anything you might have lying around. Such "found" objects lend themselves to the Japanese art of wabi-sabi, the beauty of imperfection.
Miniature Japanese Gardens shows you how to create container gardens with step-by-step photos and architectural drawings of each project presented. A detailed "floorplan" of each garden provides a basic template as you experiment with different plant types and containers. Add rocks and other elements to produce Zen-like spaces that will enhance any interior.
Photos of over 40 different gardening projects and the amazing landscapes in Japan that inspired them will appeal to gardeners, Zen students, and small space enthusiasts alike!
