Gardens that are Asian inspired are very popular right now. You see them all the time on TV programs and they look great. But how do you get this look in your own garden? It is actually fairly easy, and of all the styles of gardens that are out there, Asian inspired gardens are among the easiest to maintain.
Pay attention to your foundations.
If you are going for an Asian look you want to keep your garden lines very clean and uncluttered. For most people that means using polished river rocks as the foundation for your garden bed. You actually install the rocks after you install the plants, but it is a good idea to plan your look all at once so that it flows well.
Choose your accessories to go with your Asian garden design.
Whether you are using a wood pergola, checking out a garden sheds guide for a pagoda style shed, or placing a buddha garden statue in your garden, you should make sure that your accessories flow from your theme.
One of my favorite accessories for Asian garden decor is bamboo garden fencing.

Bamboo garden fencing can be used in several ways. You can use it as a traditional fence to enclose your yard. You can use it as a backdrop to accent just one bed, or you can use decorative bamboo fence as a border in your garden. The reason that I like this fencing so much is that more than anything else, it really gives your garden an instant Asian feel.
Get the right plants.
One of the most popular plants to put in with Asian garden statuary is a Japanese Maple. These are magnificent trees and give an air of sophistication to your garden.
But don't limit yourself. There are many plants that are appropriate in an Asian Garden. You can read more about designing an Asian garden here:[phpzon]A Japanese Touch for Your Garden (Paperback), 1[/phpzon]
Whatever garden accessories and plants that you choose for your garden the most important thing is that you really enjoy it.
