Dry Landscape Gardening

A karesansui or a dry landscape garden is composed of sand, gravel, rocks, and occasionally grass or trees but no pond or water.
Karesansui are closely associated with Zen Buddhism and often found in the front or rear gardens at the residences of Zen abbots. The main elements of karesansui are rocks and sand, which represent islands and the sea respectively. Sand is often raked in patterns, which suggest rippling water. Typical examples are the gardens of Ryoan-ji Temple and Daitoku-ji Temple, both in Kyoto. Plants are much less important in many karesansui gardens. Sitting in front of these gardens in deep contemplation is a very serene experience
