“The art of rockery gardens is thousands of years old in Japanese tradition,” B&D Rockeries says in their recent blog article. “This ancient culture that so adores the beauty and symmetry found in nature has a distinctive style in their gardens.”
The article describes the intricate, meaningful style of Japanese rock gardens. From their large stone formations and small pebble patterns to their lovely bridges and ponds of Koi fish, Japanese gardens have brought peace and serenity to the hearts and minds of millions for the thousands of years they have been a part of the Japanese tradition.
“Japanese rockeries,” the article explains, “Feature heavy stone pathways, including bridges over small pebbles or water, and some variety of a bonsai tree or other traditional shrubs.”
The article covers the various facets of the most loved Japanese rockery features, such as the types of plants used, common stone groupings, kinds of stones used, and the characteristic Koi ponds.
According to the article, “A common feature among Japanese gardens is a Zen Garden, an open area filled with small stones raked into geometric shapes. The rakes have teeth on one side and a flat tamper on the other, allowing the garden to design innumerable creative patterns.”
Japanese gardens are a lovely way to experience “samatha” (tranquility), surrounded by the beautiful nature scenes and intricate patterns that clear the mind and bring peace to the soul.
