Biographical Info

Ancient rocks form the basic supporting frame of Carleton College’s compact, Japanese garden nestled behind Watson Hall. One famous contemporary designer of such gardens writes: “Rocks serve as the most important framework in creating a sense of natural landscape. They are just like the bones in a human body; the plant materials being the flesh.” In a Japanese garden the rocks are set so one has the sense they are rooted and anchored in the ground, not sitting on top of it.
