Greetings fellow Japanese Garden lovers!
I am posting from Rochester, NY, but the garden I am will be making is near Powell River, BC Canada, at my second (dream) home. I would love to hear from others in my zone about reading to get me through the winter and plant materials suitable for a Japanese influenced garden. Existing is an ancient (60 year old) boxwood hedge enclosing a small rectangular plot - I plan a gravel main path and stepping stones branching off....Any advice about initial ground preparation would also be greatly appreciated...including any advice on using this forum for help with starting from a bare plot. With thanks! cmjones
