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.

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.

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 bought this book as well as a couple others with hopes of getting some good ideas. Lets just say "I can't wait until spring to start taking on my yard projects". I have been looking for statues and different rock and water fountains all winter long. Not only are these books great for helping you with ideas but, we have left them on the coffee table and seems like everyone who comes over ends up flipping through them. Love this book.

Have been an admirer of Japanese Gardens for many years and finally have a space to design but not a lot of time. This book gave me a lot of ideas on how to get started.

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.
