According to ancient Japanese tradition, pebbles and gravel have an important purpose within the Japanese garden. Gravel is relatively small in comparison to pebbles. This is why it is often used to symbolize water at the famous Zen gardens, also known as dry rock gardens or Karesansui (枯山水). The consistency of gravel makes it fairly easy to create wavelike patterns with a traditional rake to represent the dynamic of the ocean. This dynamic brings life to the garden, which is the role of the water element according to Japanese principles.
One ton of gravel (1000 kilograms) can roughly cover a surface of 7 m2 without the chance of open spots. In this case it will also be of a sufficient height to create traditional wavelike patterns in the gravel in the most authentic way possible.
Hakuseki gravel, also known as Hakuseki-suna (白石砂), is specially developed for the Japanese garden by Yokoso Japanese Gardens in collaboration with European producers. The gravel serves as an elegant alternative for Japanese Shirakawa gravel, famous for its usage in many Zen gardens. Hakuseki gravel has a lighter color which gives a totally different appearance to the garden in comparison to other gravel types that are often darker. This lighter color is referenced in the name Hakuseki, which is Japanese for white stone.
