Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 060061428X, Paperback)

Japanese gardens have a matchless allure—so still, and with a profound sense of beauty. All the more amazing, then, that you can construct such a special place so quickly, with this guide to planning, materials, plants, pruning, and special additions.  The transformation can begin in a single weekend with a miniature Japanese garden in an old sink for display on a balcony or patio, or with trellis panels made from bamboo.  It takes two weekends to add a zigzag bridge as a centerpiece to an iris garden or to put up an arbor.  In less than a month, you can enjoy a vertical garden on a sleep slope, a heart-shaped pool with rockery, waterfall, or tea garden.  The work lasts only a short time—the pleasure, forever.

“Ketchell has compiled a realistic guide to constructing more than 20 outstanding Oriental garden features. Detailed directions combine with impeccable illustrations, and Ketchell’s informed explanations of construction techniques, material requirements, tools, and equipment make even the most intricate design attainable.”—Booklist.
