Item Description...
In this book, renowned garden designer Motomi Oguchi offers the reader a step-by-step, practical approach to creating Japanese gardens, drawn from a wealth of experience that covers thirty years and encompasses the design of more than 400 gardens. The author uses real examples from gardens he has designed, constructed, and photographed to illustrate his key points, approaching each work from the perspective of the home or building owner.
Oguchi begins with front gardens, as these are usually what one encounters first when entering a home. Typically, these front plantings are not defined Japanese garden types but rather, physical areas. He then moves on to tsubo niwa (courtyard gardens) and kare sansui (dry gardens) that might be found in the middle or rear of a building, or any available small space. Next, he introduces tea and tree gardens, which are more likely to be sections of a larger garden; and highlights specific characteristics and conditions of interior gardens.
Within each chapter are general layouts and methods of developing the various gardens, which precede specific, step-by-step instructions. The author also offers practical and affordable variations on more ambitious designs and shows how they can be adapted to the readers home or building. In addition, Oguchi emphasizes the importance of proper maintenance and offers suggestions for special touches and restoration.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Concise Practical and Visually Appealing  Jan 29, 2008
Love this great book! Motomi Oguchi's first in English!
I have it displayed like a coffee table book, and relish over as a tresure I can disappear away into... Our tropically themed yard that has unparralled panoramic views offering one perfection longings of West, North and East will be comlimented and made more elegant with some Japanese themes running the spine of our yard... Japanese rock walkways, lit gracefully with stone lanturns... Something permanent in this ever un-permanent world. Yes, the true escape is home...
Love the details in this book and strict attention to tradition.
Lot's of photo's!!!
"Domo", Motomi Oguchi for your wonderful agricultural gifts...
I will be checking out Joseph Cali's new books, also.

Not as good as the reviews led me to believe  Jan 24, 2008
Although this is a nice book, it is not as good as the reviews led me to believe. The attractive photos focus on primarily a few gardens that the author himself has made. In at least a couple of cases, the gardens were built where cars had been parked. I kept wondering where the cars went. I am sure the owners did not get rid of them.
The book has been praised for telling readers how to build elements of the gardens. This is true for a few fences and such in the featured gardens. However, I am sure other books in my collection have more information about building more things.
Excellent resource on creating a Japanese Garden  Dec 19, 2007
This is an excellent book for those of us wishing to create their own Japanese style garden. There are numerous explanations and detailed instructions for creating various elements that are not described in most books on this subject. I can't wait for Spring to begin.
