Create Your Own Japanese Garden




 13090 Title

You can love to travel but many people prefer to stay home and enjoy their own garden and patio areas.  If you have ever dreamed of creating a Japanese garden in your backyard, here are few easy tips to help!

A.  Study nature and take special notice of water, rocks, plants, pottery and topography.  The best Japanese gardens create a feel of serenity.  This is not the place for colorful shocking lime green planters.  Try to keep the color in the plant materials.  Bright leaves in fall and dark deep greens throughout the year.  Shoot for a natural organic feel.

B.  Shrubs, trees and flowers are all found in traditional gardens.  Plant by the seasons so that the garden will always be blooming with colors no matter the time of year.  You can bury bulbs deep in pots that sprout during the winter months and have maple trees that bloom lovely in fall.  Flowering trees are wonderful in large black clay rustic pots.

C.  Include water in some form.  It can be as simple as a pot saucer that is filled with water and floating flower petals.  Many garden pots have been turned into water fountains and they are easy to use.  Almost every Japanese garden has water in some manner.  A pond or stream are not uncommon but not always possible.

D.  Lastly, try to connect the garden to your home.  Extend a deck to the gardens edge or use garden pottery on the deck that is also displayed in the back of the garden.  Try to find a similar look or pattern to draw them together for unity and serenity.
