Hello All,

I have been interested in gardening for more than 20 years.  I became interested in Japanese gardening when my son moved to Japan 5 years ago.  I like to stretch the rules of design but I like to understand the rules first.  Right now I like to take inspiration from Japanese gardens rather than trying to create one in accordance with time tested rules, mostly because I don't know all the rules.  I'm here to learn, contribute where I can but mostly to have fun.



Welcome, Steve.  Where in Japan is your son living?  There are several forum members with gardens taking inspiration from the Japanese styles, so you are in good company!



Steve welcome,  it is good to see so many new members signing up from GW.  Look forward to your posts.



My son lives between Osaka and Kobe.  We were there in March just at the beginning of cherry blossoms.  I was amazed a the number of sculpted trees in nearly everyone's small yard.


Welcome to the forum!

Hello again Mike,

I am so sorry to see that your eyesight is failing so rapidly and that dememtia has taken over.  Fortunately, these maladies do not seem to affect your knowledge and insight with regard to Japanese gardening.
Welcome back.

I'm glad to see all of your parts are doing well.  I have used the ladder several times. 
Ben has contaced me and I have offered to help.  He said that he would call and we could discuss what he would like from me.  I would be happy to provide pictures or descriptons of what I did and learned.
Be sure to take a warm coat to Massachusetts, a sweatshirt will not be enough.  Enjoy your journey and destination.  Keep in touch.
