Japanese rock gardens can easily be arranged in a sand setting or in green garden settings. What is the point of having a rock garden? Well, the Japanese, as well as many other cultures, view rocks as being part of the earth and metal elements, and believe these elements to have the most positive impact upon the human spirit or soul when arranged in an aesthetically please design, according to balance and texture, not according to custom. Custom and tradition are for people who value the habits of humans, but the study of a rock garden is meant to invoke a deep set appreciation for balance, serenity, completion, and ideals. It is part of a way to smooth our souls out and make them feel better, much like our bodies feel better after a two hour massage.
Japanese rock gardens often do feature plants, especially plants of various shapes, sizes, colors, and textures which form together to make a pleasing whole, not only with each other, but with the rest of the rock garden, including the flat ground underneath. These plants must be tended to carefully, and they must come from some type of good environment to do well in their new home.
