Creating a peaceful oasis in your own backyard is every homeowner’s dream, but it is not something that occurs without effort. Spring is the best time to get started on a Japanese garden project and pick up Zen fountains, Buddha statues and other supplies. But you may not be aware of what Japanese garden is supposed to look like. Fortunately, there are countless books available on this subject alone.
The Japanese take their gardens and Zen décor very seriously and they go about the design of a garden in very deliberate ways, but there is no one method for creating your own. Your backyard garden may look very different from someone else’s, depending on the space you have available.
