     The Japanese Courtyard Garden began with a practical purpose in 15th century Kyoto, but it soon became an art form in its own right. It's a garden designed for very small spaces between buildings and is intended to be viewed through windows and enjoyed at close range, as one might survey a painting. Like other Japanese landscapes, the Courtyard re-creates the beauty and balance of nature but on a miniature scale, replete with symbolism. These serene gardens are carefully hand-built, each item especially chosen to serve a purpose within the whole. They emphasize foliage plants, such as grasses, ferns, and bamboo artfully arranged around mossy rocks rich with character. A water basin where guests can pause to wash their hands is often included. As well suited to modern life as they were to ancient Japan, the serene Courtyard Garden offers sanctuary.
