Surprised no one answered you

I don't have one but I would check out internet search for images of Japanese/Asian garden decor and then just try to recreate it in miniature

Very simply lines, lots of rock, koi pond
Mini buddha

They have lots of mini junipers or cypress you can prune to make it look like bonsai

Hope these ideas help some

Too bad you don't "do" pics, would love to see it

dillansnana, sorry I haven't been on here in a while and just saw your post. Since you don't do pic's it would help if you told us what you have in mind of what you want your garden to look like. (Japanese garden) is rather broad if you could narrow it down some. Water feature, pagoda, bridge, dry creek bed, arbor, what plants you like that grow in your zone, things like this would help us.
