Item description - YO08020004
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.

Zenshiki gravel, also known as Zenshiki-suna (禅式砂), is specially developed for the Japanese garden by Yokoso Japanese Gardens in collaboration with European producers. The famous Shirakawa gravel, that is used for many Zen gardens all throughout Japan, formed the basis of this gravel type. A combination of mostly light color tones. The name Zenshiki means Zen style, in reference to the gardens that served as its foundation. This all makes Zenshiki gravel a very elegant substitute for Shirakawa gravel that is locally produced in a cost efficient way with high standards of quality and authenticity.
