Hi from Colorado.
« on: June 01, 2008, 05:11:41 PM »
Hi from Colorado. My name is Justin, Ive been working on my Japanese style garden for the past three years now. actually I started on it at least ten years ago but after allot more research and a few visits to Japan I decided it was time for a complete renovation.

My main influence comes from the smaller courtyard gardens that one might find at a ryokan and also tea gardens, So naturally my garden is on a smaller more intimate scale....at least thats what I'm aiming for.

I hope to gain allot of knowledge from all of you and hopefully share some of my own.

Justin,  Welcome, we would love to see some photos.  Sounds like you you did the right thing by redoing your garden.  The more we know about Japanese Gardens we realize how little we know.  I wish I could turn back the hands of time and create my garden now.  Oh how things would be different.  But then I would learn more in a few years and realize I had done it all wrong and have to start over again.

Thanks for the welcomes' Jando, even as I redo my garden I still find things I wish I would have done differently but I guess that's just part of the process.
