Watering, a term in Landscape Architecture, generally means knocking stone with a bamboo tube. It is based on lever principle: water keeps flowing into a piece of bamboo tube from the opening on the one end, and when the tube is full, the balance is broken, then the other end of the bamboo tube knocks the stone to make a noise. Watering is often seen in garden or courtyard with Japanese style, which perfectly manifests an implicit Zen culture in Japanese garden system.
