About This Project

Dimensions: 30m x 20m – 600m2

Build time: 4 weeks

The brief on this project was to refurbish an existing water garden introducing Japanese design elements. The stream and small pond were completely stripped out, reshaped and relined to give us a fresh canvas to work from. The banks of the new stream were lined with treated timber logs interspersed with natural rock. The vertical logs provided a formal structure and clean lines, while the rocks break up the shape and add visual interest.

The stepping stone path runs adjacent to the stream allowing the viewer to interact with different parts of the garden along their journey. By manipulating the viewing angles we are able to hide aspects of the stream which are revealed as you get closer to the top of the garden. This garden also features a Japanese water basin arrangement and Waiting Arbour.
