The Adjusting Comparison between Iranian & Japanese Garden with an Approach Ecological Psychology

In many cultures especially in Iranian & Japanese culture there is some special coherence between human & nature. Iranian & Japanese garden was one of the main models of garden making in the world and it had a firm union by cultural and climatic properties of people. In this article, by reviewing these two gardens from aspect of ecological cognizance we want to know properties and main elements of these two gardens and how these could influence human and where, s the human place in it. Due to the ecological approach, capability of anything is combination of its physical and environmental characteristic, which is singularly harmonize with creature, s action and feeling system. Macrocosm organized of different palms (and areas) which one apparel and hides another one. And whenever you have to move in the circuit you can cognize it. Both the regions of Iranian and Japanese garden create common perception. In the both of models, there exist evergreen trees, autumn, fruit and flowers with some differences. Also, trees have normal form but in the Iranian garden planting have a geometrical array which is harmonized with available paths and water, whereas in the Japanese garden it is not so. In this project, realized that Iranian garden as the perfect sample, has complete cognitional sequence and human can raise his position in the Iranian garden by more growth and knowledge.
