Japanese Garden Design with Wolfegang Bonham
Unlike any other style of garden design, Japanese gardening focuses more on tones of greens and textures of the plant's foliage rather than on bright, showy flowers. This creates a very calming and soothing effect in the garden, especially when combined with water features. Add in "Hide and Reveal", "Wabi-Sabi" and methods for Dry Landscape Zen Gardens and your relaxing oasis is complete. Let landscape designer Wolfegang Bonham show you how.
