creating a Japanese garden.

many thanks for the above, Bob I have ordered a book from the site you gave, which I think will help. My garden was well established, with large bamboo, ferns and acers, plants all characteristic with a japanese garden, but a little bit scattered,I have bought a stupa and we are placing a large Buddha at the top of the pond, there is a large area between the pond and the bamboos, and this is where my problem is, trying to bring it all together, hence the stones or pebbles, i have a pile of flint stones to the side of the bamboo, where I was trying to make a tumbling mountain and the stupa at the bottom, but Im afraid it all looks a bit of a disaster. Thank you obelixx for sharing your photos, that garden looks lovely, also thank you for your expression of sympathy, my sons second anniversary is in august, he died in china, so this garden is very important to me, he had a strong liking for buddhism.

Hi, I am trying to turn part of my garden into a buddha garden in memory of my son, I am putting a large area into gravel or pebbles, and wondering should they be of a particular type and colour. 

Thanks,

Beatrice.
