I'm not much of a gardener and it figures that I'd choose to want one of the more difficult types of gardens to design. This book presents different projects in an easy to understand format. It lists the supplies, types of plants and spells out how to carry out each project step by step. You may need other references too but this one is a good book to have. Good illustrations too.

A great run down on the essentials in a Japanese garden. From plants to design and bamboo. A great book for how-to water features and more. A great book.

It is a very good book. I learned a lot about the Japanese gardens culture from this book, and now I understand what they mean. So, when I look at my pictures of The Japanese Tea Garden in San-Francisco, I know, how it works. Maybe there are not enough details for each project, but it is OK with me, for it gives a fuel for my creativity. Thanks for wonderful price for a wonderful book.

I have quite a few books on Japanese Gardens. I am in no way an expert but this book doesn't really give you a complete picture and the projects are not really step by step either. I would recommend it for someone who wants to add some Japanese Garden elements to their existing garden but for a complete guide it falls a little short.

Not every project in this book may be for you but what I find is that these type of books get you to thinking. You look at something and think "Gee that would work for me" or "I really like that". Good book

Book was very helpful in creating an asian garden. Helped to focus on areas that were difficult to design because of the shapes and corners that are part a my yard.
