Eric wants to know what advice Steve might have for a gardener with a small space but wanted something similar to a Japanese garden. Steve feels anyone can create something similar in a small space by using small or dwarf plants. Yaupon hollies, mahonia or ground covers such as asian Jasmine even turf such as zoysia, or a small water feature, or a pool with some goldfish or koi, even a rock or bolder can create a Japanese garden feel in a small space. One does not need a lot of space to have a garden with a Japanese garden feel.
