If you are looking for a quiet place for contemplation and meditation, I recommend you a Japanese garden where essence of nature, beauty, and stylish designs are mixed in. You will always remember the joyful and tremendous moment that you will spend with you loves one. On the other hand, if you dreams are to plant one on your own this article could be helpful to you.
There are three things to consider when thinking about planting a Japanese garden: planning, planting and maintaining the garden.

Planning a Japanese garden

Planning your Japanese garden is very important. This step will help you determine the style of garden you can afford, the design to go with, and the type of landscaping to choose. Your Japanese garden could be Karesansui, Tsukiyama, or Chaniwa garden styles. Depending on your budget, the size of the lot, or your tastes you can choose between a strolling garden and viewing one. Hence, you can include in your design at least one hill associated with a water fall to represent mountains, a lake, or a seashores. The use of gems in a sculptured-garden can offer a sense of inspiration, beauty and perfection.

Depending on where the garden will be located you can think about including water (real or symbolic), rocks or stone arrangements, and lantern into your Japanese garden. Your water basin can be placed near the garden or underneath the stone basin. Rocks can be used for garden shape, waterfall, or in building bridges and walkways for your garden. Remember to plant a garden which is rich in texture and symbolism. The types of plants to use can be large, small or medium-sized evergreen trees. Some folks love Ajuga Catlins, Angelina Sedum, and green giant plants in their gardens. Others prefer Asian jasmine, Aucuba gold dust, and Chocalate chip Ajugo. I suggest that you plant a variety of trees to enhance your garden’s visual beauty. The following trees are intended to create a rich background texture in your Japanese garden: Arp Rosemary, Autumn Fern, Bar Harbor Jupiter, Bald Cypress Tree, and Rosy Glow Barberry.

Maintaining your Japanese garden

Planting your Japanese garden is awesome, but you need to do more. As any other part of your lovely house, it is important to maintain your garden design properly. Make sure your plants are well taken care of. Look periodically for any abnormally that needs to be fixed in your garden’s sprinkler system. Otherwise your plants will dry if your water basin is not operational.
