I am a big fan of the Japanese Garden.  The use of rock, water, and plant elements as part of a trinity of symbolism and metaphor.  Heavy with dwarf conifers, large boulders, koi ponds, and waterfalls, the landscape is a place that causes a person to sit for a time and connect with their natural world.

There are many studies confirming water’s calming effect in the home and office environment.  I visited the Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford, Illinois early June of 2014.  Below are a few photos of some of their water features.
