A Japanese court noble wrote Sakuteiki or "Records of Garden Making", nearly 1000 years ago - making it the oldest known book on gardening. Contains practical advice on garden building techniques and the Heian-era style - much of which is still followed today by our gardeners and philosophical discussions of Heian-era design.
