Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Nourish the soul and restore the spirit: this photo-packed guidebook shows how to create the sense of harmony and balance of Zen philosophy. Every element that goes into the garden holds meaning, along with its careful arrangement, and its use of natural and unobtrusive materials. Walls, fences, and paths provide security, beauty, and boundaries that separate and frame various areas. Boulders, stones, and gravel contrast with smooth, flowing ponds and rushing waterfalls. No detail goes unexplained--from adding koi and water plants to putting up a teahouse.
