Description: The Master of the Nets Garden is among the finest gardens in Suzhou . It is recognized with other classical Suzhou gardens as a UNESCO World Heritage Site . The garden demonstrates Chinese garden designers skills for blending art , nature and architecture to create unique masterpieces . The Master of the Nets is regarded among garden connoisseurs for its mastering the techniques of relative dimension , contrast , sequence and depth . The eastern part consists of residential quarters while the gardens are located in the western part . Plants and rocks are used to create views which represent several seasons . It also includes three side courts to the east and south . The two dominant elements of the composition are the Barrier of Cloud grotto , a cypress tree dating from the Ming Dynasty , and a pine tree several centuries old . The areas to the south of the Rosy Cloud Pool were used for social activities and the areas to the north were used for intellectual activities . The buildings are laid out in a style called close to the water which is used to give the Rosy Clouds Pool the illusion of great size . Small buildings are set on rocks or piers directly over the water surface while large buildings are separated from the pool planted with trees to obscure their size .
