Hanover Garden Club: A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever: Japanese Gardens

How the Japanese view gardens, the very different types (no, they’re not just monochrome green with gravel!), the history behind some of them, amazing events that take place in them and some of the techniques employed to keep them looking like the works of art they undoubtedly are. It will answer many of those tricky questions you have pondered on, like why some Japanese bridges are so highly arched, why early garden makers were ‘untouchables’ and which temple was burned down by a mad monk in 1950.
