I have noticed that western style gardens _ such as those seen in big castles, for example _ characterize themselves by man_made forms that generally follow symmetric patterns. In contrast, Japanese gardens, while also man_made, always try to recreate lifelike landscapes, by using not only botanical elements but also water, gravel, rocks and other natural components. In a similar manner, when compared to western floral arrangements, Ikebana compositions also have a stronger emphasis in reproducing natural settings.
The primary position in a florist is the lead flower designer. This job could be fulfilled by the owner, a manager, or another employee and the task is to create designs using flowers. Even though this may seem pretty basic and simple, it is a very critical position. Every completed floral design will be judged and represents the quality and creativity of the florist shop.
