The contemporary fast-paced life makes it necessary for us to have a rest in solitude and quiet surroundings. Being in contact with nature is a good way to achieve spiritual peace. Such surroundings can be established in the confines of your own home. Japanese gardens are becoming more and more widely spread in the last few years. When creating such a garden, the nature’s characteristics remain almost unharmed.The Japanese garden is essentially a nature crib in miniature. Predominant colours are green, grey and brown, combined contrastingly with the flowers’ and fruits’ natural colours. Rocks, fruit trees, flowers and flower bushes are main motives in the garden. By combining various nuances in the confines of a natural composition, the nature’s aesthetic appearance is authentically represented.
Japanese landscaping in modern style
Rocks have a surprisingly essential role for the garden’s ideal composition. They help achieve an authentic nature landscape and sometimes take part in putting the separate exterior elements together. An idea is to build miniature decoration elements, such as rock walls, waterfalls and bridges. Small lakes are a classical element of the garden exterior. In addition, they provide conditions for breeding decorative fishes.It is important that the garden and house have one and the same configuration. Older buildings can easily be architecturally correlated to Japanese gardens. If your house is build in a modern style, with non-standard shapes or colours, it is appropriate that you use foreign species of plants, bright colours and artistic decoration for shaping up the exterior concept.
