An important classic of gardening instruction, Japanese Gardens for Today is a practical down-to-earth explanation of the basic rules of Japanese garden design and care. It is sure to prove of great value to both the professional landscape architect and to the green-thumbed home owner, whether he is designing an entirely new garden or only seeking an illusion of spaciousness and rightness in a tiny courtyard or corner.

The books wealth of drawings are fully integrated with clear, succinct text to present the first full and practical treatment of the subject ever published in English.
