Tokyo DIY Gardening Hands-on gardening for a crowded city

Moss Covered Roofs and Walls

On a Nodai Garden Laboratory trip, I visited some amazing gardens and shrines, and stayed at a beautiful ryokan called Yoshiike. What I did not expect to see were these incredible moss roofs and walls in unexpected places.

While I love designed gardens, I am also amazed at how nature can impose itself on our built environment, creating beauty in unlikely places. I like the idea of the garden extending itself into the everyday.

Lesson: Even mundane structures come alive when we let nature colonize our habitat.
