  • Japanese Zen Garden

    en gardens, karesansui, are also known as dry rock gardens or dry landscape gardens. This type of garden is called "dry" because it does not contain water, and very rarely plants. They generally consist of sand, gravel, rocks, possibly moss and some evergreen shrubs.

    The dry garden is a symbolic representation of the world, the established order and nature. It aims to eliminate, in accordance with the principles of Zen, all unnecessary elements, and therefore has a strong abstract character. It is still modest in size, and empty of all color, in a pure black and white, which refers to monochrome painting from the Song period. Here water is instead represented by sand or gravel, thanks to patterns of waves or waves made with a rake. It is up to the monks to take care of the maintenance of the Zen garden.en gardens, karesansui, are also known as dry rock gardens or dry landscape gardens.
