As one of the UK’s leading Japanese garden design and build specialists, Rhino Rock llp has over 25 years experience and successfully completed over 250 projects. These range in size from tiny Courtyard gardens to 1.5 acre Stroll gardens. We have uploaded a small selection of our Japanese garden projects to illustrate our creative, award winning work. We have an extensive knowledge of Japanese garden styles and can design and build traditional Zen gardens or put a contemporary twist on a classic. We source Japanese plants and materials to suit all environments, including both indoor or outdoor spaces.

Garden Design Awards
Our journey began in 1995, when we built our first show garden at the the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, for which we were awarded a Gold Medal. Since then we have received three Silver Medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and numerous other garden show awards.
For the past 7 years we have been supplying plants and materials to Kazuyuki Ishihara san, the renowned japanese garden designer. Mr. Ishihara has won ten consecutive Gold Medals for his inspirational Japanese Gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. He cannot bring his own plants from Japan to display at Chelsea, so he relies on us to lend him our plants from our stock which meet his exacting standards. Many of the plants he uses are on sale at our retail centre after the show or used in our projects. This gives our customers an opportunity to plant a piece of history in their own gardens.
Over the years our plants have been featured in 20 RHS Medal winning displays at the Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton Park Flower shows. We continue to visit plant growers across Europe to ensure we have the most authentic plants for Japanese gardens outside of Japan.
