Japanese Gravel Shirakawa 5-10 mm

  • Japanese Gravel Shirakawa 5-10 mm - 0801-0002

Item description
There are two sizes of gravel and pebbles commonly used in Japanese gardens. Small gravel, which is tiny and sharp on the edges, often signifies water in Zen gardens, Karesansui, that do not include the wet element. Raking the small gravel allows you to create waves and patterns that resemble water.

Larger, pebbles usually rounded and smooth, can also be used to represent water in larger gardens, although it is most typically used as a background for larger elements such as stepping stones or statues. Bigger pebbles are also used to fill the so-called Sokkou or gutter that is used to discharge the rain coming from the roofs.

The structure of this gravel, sharp chunks instead of rounded pebbles makes it particularly suitable for the creation of the so-called Samon, or raked ripples, which represent the ocean in the karesansui, or dry rock garden.
