ABOUT THE PROJECT
- Dimensions: 200m2
- Build time: 4 weeks
Phase one: The aim for this garden was to present two distinctly different concepts of a Japanese garden, which would work well together when viewed from the house. This project consisted of simple, yet bold elements. Within the lawn, Tenshi standing stones were positioned alongside a cloud tree and red leafed Japanese maple. In the sunken area of the garden existed a Koi pond and waterfall. We introduced a combination of evergreen and seasonal plants within this area. Linking the two levels of the garden is a pathway of silver grey granite irregular stepping stones and silver grey granite paving, next to a palisade retaining wall.
Phase two: Phase two focused on the driveway and front section of the garden. A variety of lush evergreen planting was used in and around bold stone features and specimen Japanese maples were used to inject changing colours throughout the seasons. Characteristic blue grey granite rocks create steps down into a seclude courtyard which contains a water wall and more planting.
