Japanese-Style Gardens

by Brian Funk, Sarah Schmidt
OVERVIEW
Japanese-inspired gardens—which distill the natural world so as to foster a sense of calm and promote reflection—have delighted Americans for more than a century. This magnificent guide from the world-famous Brooklyn Botanical Garden offers in-depth, beautifully photographed profiles of eight of the most iconic and best-regarded Japanese-style public gardens in the United States. Featuring commentary by the top names in the field, it contains practical information for home gardeners on how to create and care for a Japanese-inspired garden, and will enlighten those who want a deeper understanding of the intent behind the design.
