Japanese Water Garden Design

There are important guidelines which should be applied when creating a Japanese Water Garden Design, of special significance is that it should appear as if the hand of nature had designed the garden itself. Ponds should sit well in the overall landscape and appear as if though they have always been there; water should always be kept moving and crystal clear as a symbol of purity, the source of which should come in the form of streams and waterfalls, never as a fountain.

There are similar guidelines surrounding the construction of waterfalls, edging of ponds and the use of focal points within the garden. For this reason it is especially important to research the style, design and construction requirements of the various types of Japanese Water Gardens, from those consisting of water to dry water landscapes.
