I’ve read somewhere that in designing a Japanese garden a newbie should start with a field of gravel and slowly place rocks, plants and water; this is supposed to remind one that less is more, that everything hangs in an elegant balance that can be destroyed when one tries to fill space.
I’m really hoping these people are on their way to creating a fantastic Japanese garden. But not holding my breath.
Nevertheless, this yard has inspired the new WTF category. For the bitchy voyeur in all of us.
