A meandering pathway takes you on a journey through a tiered garden. As you enter the first level of the garden to the right of the path are 3 vertical palisades with evergreen underplanting in a bed of 6mm silver grey Zen gravel. Ahead is a shallow water basin arrangement and 60cm Kodai Maru Yukimi snow lantern. Kuro basalt cobbles lay around the base of the water basin, with kneeling stones and evergreen planting beside. The rest of the bed consists of 6mm silver-grey zen gravel, feature rocks, bamboo four eye fencing and ground cover planting. A stepping stone pathway through the gravel leads to a beige granite curved bench.
Stepping down to the next tier we designed and constructed a Japanese summerhouse with a shoji door and shoji window for added interest. The summerhouse overlooks an area of grass with a Kasuga lantern and panoramic views.
Carrying on along the path down to the next tier, the path leads around a ‘Fishermans net’ with silver-grey granite palisades, Zen gravel and a variety of evergreen planting such as Pieris, Bloombux rhododendron and Nandina domestica. Further down the path is a palisade monolith arrangement and evergreen planting.
