The green gate way, gardening




Black pines are garden trees lucky traditionally in the Far East.
They are planted in the entrance hall of old houses.

In the very large garden of the
Imperial Palace, we can watch enormous black pines.





The central black pines pass from about 100-200 for years.
Height about 10-15m (32-49ft). Width about 3-5m (9.8-16ft).

It took very long time till they became these form.





Specialized landscape gardening craftsmen care for the black pines.
It costs very expensive to maintain this form and colors.

"
Ogawa jihee" was one of the most famous gardeners.

  4. There's absolutely NOTHING like Japanese Gardens - Everything & I mean everything is perfectly manicured & just perfect. They're so beautiful! I'd love to have my backyard like that, but like you said, it's very expensive.
