Do you have tips for perfect decoration of our Asian garden?

In an Asian garden, you must provide white gravel beaches for relaxation, or basin. Instead of aisles, place slates or flat stones that will shape the way to go. Feel free to let the foam invading your outside is typically Asian! Finally, bring Deco elements such as statues or pretty wooden cabins for birds.
