Garden in Japanese Style - an Example of Brevity and Special Philosophy
Every plant and every object in Japanese garden means and symbolizes something. Landscapes created by human are filled with special meaning and lead to the attainment of the great mysteries of existence.||Japanese garden helps to get rid of the problems of the real world and find peace and tranquility. The basics of the traditional Japanese garden are remained unchanged: water garden, rock garden, seasons or moss. The basis of these gardens is group of trees, rocks or symbols. The gardeners bring a special philosophy in own gardens, and every object or plant takes place in accordance with the idea.||In each stone it is important to see “face” or “position” to determine the nature and the role which it plays in composition. Large boulders and stones symbolize strength, resilience, bravery and courage, and every stone “position” (whether it leans against a tree or “runs away” from the site) carries its meaning. Fixed static of stones and their asymmetrical layout make you think about the problems of life and eternal rest.||Flowers in Japanese garden are impressive any time of the year. As a rule, conifers and evergreens dominate. The basis of Japanese garden is recreation of natural landscapes in miniature. At the combination of words “Japanese Garden” you see the picture in front of your eyes: stones, conifers, flowers and water.||The idea of the garden comes from our subconscious, and is subject to the natural law of nature. In nature, you will not see a rectangular basin. Be careful, even to small details, all must bear harmony and symmetry. Symmetry is a harmonious arrangement of stones ensemble, a group of trees and stream or pond. Another rule: avoid a wide variety. A slight repetition of one element creates the impression of perfect harmony and integrity. And though sometimes for Europeans Japanese garden seems empty, but they believe that in such a way the harmony of “ying” and “yang” allows to highlight the importance of each element.
