Japanese gardens have been an inspiration for centuries, influencing the creation of new gardens and landscapes both in Japan and in the West. In this introductory course to Japanese garden design, you will learn about the traditional techniques used to establish gardens of peace and Zen. These gardens require a high attention to detail, involving various techniques in pruning and shaping plants, the importance of viewpoints, wood preservation methods, as well as the unique applications of water and stone and how they connect to each other within the garden to create this compositional balance and harmony. Wherever your interest lie, in theory or in practice, this course is intended to help you appreciate and understand this unique tradition.
