Amazing Asian Inspired Gardens

Perhaps because they are so strongly rooted in tradition, Japanese/Zen/Asian-inspired gardens tend to feel, at the very least, transporting. These gardens rely on three things:

First, the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, a principle focused on finding beauty in the imperfect, incomplete and humble. This aesthetic is practiced through clean lines, space repetition and purposeful placement, such as strategically-placed rocks.

Next are the symbolic elements. Here you will see Buddha statues, the yatsuhashi, or zigzag path intended to slow down the pace of visitors, and the garden gate, a symbol of escaping life’s everyday stresses to a tranquil space. 

Lastly, are the sensory elements. Falling water and the use of lighting promote reflection, movement and sound. These spaces tend to be enclosed by fences to separate and distinguish them. Simple, adorned seating allows visitors to connect with their surroundings.
