Japanese Gardens Summary

Japanese Gardens: Tranquility, Simplicity, Harmony by Geeta Mehta

Featuring beautiful photographs and insightful commentary this Japanese gardening book is a must-have for any gardening or zen enthusiast.

At the heart of a Japanese garden is harmony with nature. More than simply a landscape of trees and flowering shrubs, a Japanese garden provides a place of serenity and rest, filled with peaceful spots that lend themselves to meditation and contemplation. Japanese Gardens celebrates and illustrates this ideal, showcasing the exquisite natural beauty of more than 20 quintessentially Japanese gardens-big and small, urban and rural, traditional and contemporary.

The expert author-and-photographer team behind this book excels at capturing and explaining the essential elements and techniques that distinguish Japanese garden design from that of other countries. The featured sites reflect a cross-section of Japanese culture and history including large feudal period gardens, temple and Zen gardens and private countryside gardens. The mountain flower garden, tea garden, rock garden and bonsai garden alike are all celebrated and appreciated in this beautiful book.

Japanese Gardens Reviews

Capturing the essence of nature in twenty-three gardens in Japan, authors Geeta Mehta and Kimie Tada classify and tell the history of garden making in that country, as well as explain the elements and techniques in their design. The selection of landscapes is well chosen, ranging from classic temple gardens to public and private gardens in great variety and size. Noboru Murata's glorious photographs celebrate their beauty. -The National Gardener
