Seeing Japanese Gardens-- Part 4: Arkansas and Chicago

GARDEN OF THE PINE WIND:  Part of the University of Arkansas' Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, Arkansas, it is a 4-acre garden designed by David Slawson, who used regional landscapes and the ravines on the site as his inspiration.

Among the highlights are three cascades, a waterfall, two springs, four pools and a half-acre koi pond.
