Zen Gardening - Paperback

ISBN: 1862054584

[SR: 5775387], Paperback, [EAN: 9781862054585], Pavilion Books, Pavilion Books, Book, [PU: Pavilion Books], Pavilion Books, Reflects the increasing interest in Eastern philosophies on the creation of natural balance in the garden; Provides detailed practical examples showing how to imbue your garden with the elements of harmony and peace; Gardens inspired by Zen are the ideal antidote to today's busy lifestyle - an oasis of calm and tranquillity - and require very little maintenance; Zen gardens are for contemplation, reflecting the beauty of nature and the aesthetic sense of the gardener. Originally created in Japanese monasteries around the twelfth century, their beauty comes from their simplicity and the precise arrangement of rocks, gravel, water and plants. Using as few or as many plants as required, Zen gardens also provide an eco-friendly alternative to the old-fashioned lawn, often requiring little or no water. For those with a limited area, Zen gardens create the illusion of space and freedom. Zen Gardening simplifies the principles of this art and reveals the meaning of the different elements, putting every aspect of creating a Zen garden at the hands of today's gardeners. Zen gardening need not mean ripping up your garden and starting from scratch. Nor need it involve replacing your lawn with white gravel. It may simply be that a dark patch of foliage needs a powerful white stone to provide yang and balance the view. This beautiful book includes chapters on Elements and their Symbolism, Water - Creating Balance and Tranquillity, Rocks and Stones - Creating Space and Energy and Sand and Gravel - Creating Simplicity and Serenity. There are also chapters on Plants for the Zen Garden, Architectural Elements and Ornaments. giving practical advice and showing how modern gardens can be transformed into beautiful, harmonious spaces., A Zen garden can be an oasis in a busy world, a space of calm, tranquility, and beauty, a thing apart from the hectic pace of our lives. Whether a tiny courtyard or larger outdoor space, Zen gardens have in common their few, simple elements arranged to honor nature and celebrate its changing seasons. The design of Zen Gardening contributes to our understanding of the aesthetic, as it is as artful and focused as a Zen garden itself. How to create such harmony and peace outside our own doors and windows? Sunniva Harte's book inspires with numerous large color photos showing whole landscapes devoted to rocks, sand, and water, or cozy gardens with a few vital Zen elements. But Zen gardens are more than raked sand and a few carefully placed rocks: an entire chapter is devoted to plants for Zen gardens. It begins with a quote from the Japanese poet Kikaku--"Full autumn moon on the straw mat, pine shadow"--and goes on to explain how plants have long been valued in Japan for their changing with the seasons and their sensuousness and textural qualities. Ornamental grasses, pines, Japanese maples, iris, bamboo, mosses, and even hostas are shown used in the Zen manner, with instructions on placement, care, and pruning. Harte also gives instruction on design, architecture, pathways, and materials for Zen gardens. Those who would like to incorporate a bit of the Zen feeling of tranquility into their everyday gardens, but who don't want to do a total garden remodel, will appreciate the chapter on ornamentation. Lovingly chosen ornaments enhance the Zen atmosphere, serving symbolic purposes as well as working as focal points and humanizing the garden. A variety of simple additions--such as stone urns and lanterns, carved Buddhas, trays of special rocks, decorative wrappings, water basins, and bonsai--personalize and lend an aura of Zen tranquility, much as Zen poet Ikkyu's poem does: "When, just as they are, white dewdrops gather on scarlet maple leaves, regard the scarlet beads!" --Valerie Easton, 1057, Landscape, 173508, Architecture, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5289, Japanese Gardens, 5241, Gardening & Landscape Design, 48, Crafts, Hobbies & Home, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5310, By Technique, 5244, Container Gardening, 16926924011, Hydroponics, 5295, Organic, 52073011, Propagation & Cultivation, 5311, Topiary, 10828101, Urban, 688864, Water Gardens & Ponds, 5241, Gardening & Landscape Design, 48, Crafts, Hobbies & Home, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 12286, Spirituality, 11309332011, Zen, 12279, Buddhism, 22, Religion & Spirituality, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Zen Gardening - Paperback

2002, ISBN: 1862054584

Hardcover

[SR: 921756], Paperback, [EAN: 9781862054585], Pavilion Books, Pavilion Books, Book, [PU: Pavilion Books], 2002-04-18, Pavilion Books, Classical Zen gardens were designed by Japanese monks and are now revered as national monuments. Gardens that have been designed according to the principles of Feng Shui are places where contemplation and tranquility are possible so providing a haven from the stresses of modern day living. This book aims to show how Zen gardening can put us back in touch with the elements and restore a vital natural equilibrium to our environment. Sunniva Harte carefully puts the art of Zen gardening into context by explaining the intellectual and emotional starting points from which it originated and showing how the Japanese view of nature differs from Western thinking. We are shown how key elements such as water, plants, rocks and architecture have a symbolic as well as aesthetic value reminding mankind of his place in the natural order of the universe. Overall this is a well put-together, chunky, handsome hardback with some great hints and tips about creating peace in our busy world.
