A Small Japanese Garden Style to Present a Japanese Touch in Your Outdoor
A natural touch and beautiful atmosphere are always brought by Japanese garden styles. The simplicity of the Japanese garden actually can be a special attraction for Japanese people or even Japanese enthusiasts. If you like Japanese things, you can still present a Japanese touch in your outdoor area by designing a garden with the Japanese style itself.
Look at a small Japanese garden style above! The combination of gravel, rocks, and grass dominate the garden area. Yup, these elements never miss to decorate every Japanese garden and actually the gravel and rocks can be a garden path that will protect people from the splash of water or mud.
We can define that this Japanese garden shows its naturalness clearly. Starting from the bamboo element that is used as garden background is installed neatly to border the garden edges. Its beige color gives a warm touch to the garden atmosphere. Indeed, bamboo is also other important elements of the Japanese garden style and this element is not only found in the background. It can be found in a bamboo which spills the water into the stone water container (tsukubai). People can take the water by using the bamboo scoop.
Another Japanese garden element is the water. It’s important because besides the water is the source of human life, it also brings the natural touch to the garden. Japanese people also create a koi fish pond or they only have a mini water fountain or waterfall in their garden.
Some plants embellish the Japanese garden above. Although they don’t have lush foliage, the plants still contribute beautiful atmosphere to the garden. In fact, a Japanese garden is also related to the bonsai plant. It’s because the Japanese garden is always oriented to the China where in this country many Bonsai masters born.
The last but not least is a stone lantern over there. It will illuminate the garden with its warm light at night. Usually, Japanese people place the lantern inside the fish pond or around the garden area.
You can use this small Japanese garden style for your outdoor especially if you have a small area in it.
