Asian Influenced Gardening: Let Nature Lead You

Updated on February 15, 2019

Naturalistic gardens surround a building in Japan.

When taking a stroll through a European garden you'll be quick to notice that they seem to overpower nature and force it to work within their imagination. On the other hand, Asian gardens seem to allow nature to have it's way.

Chinese and Japanese gardeners are recognized worldwide as having the unique ability to let nature lead them into creating the most amazing naturalistic gardens.


All throughout Asia not only will you see the wonderful gardens, but you'll also discover that some of those same gardens have been passed down from one generation to the next. Like treasured paintings, the carefully crafted gardens have lasted many years.

Most of the mainstream Asian gardeners have followed and practiced certain gardening styles that have lasted centuries. Just looking at their garden shows their true passion for the art and their deep love of nature.


1. Courtyard Gardens: these gardens are specifically created to be used and to be viewed from above.

2. Tea Gardens: these gardens are designed to be places of ritual and peace.

3. Pond & Hill: these gardens use rocks and water.

4. Stroll Style: these gardens encouraged a visitor to walk through them.

5. Dry Landscapes: these gardens use sand to tell their story.


The predominance of nature in Asian gardening goes without saying. These gardening masters have taken their surroundings and brought it all together in some magnificent gardens.

Look closely and you will see the rocks and water features tell the story of the land. Shrubs and trees are used to bring to life the country's mountains and their greenery. River-washed stones seem to speak of the many flowing streams and ponds. Asian gardening really does bring together all of earth's elements.


Although you can stare at these gardens from a distance for what seems like hours, they are created to be gazed upon up close. Truthfully, the garden's most masterful aspects are only seen when viewed as near as you can get. This particular feature allows this style of gardening to be used both in quaint urban locations as well as suburbia with limited space to garden.
