Combining Modern Design and Zen to Create Lasting Peace

By

Welcome home…

One of the nicest clients we’ve had the pleasure to design for!

They requested a Japanese-style garden to greet guests as they walked up to their door. The walkway was created with gray slate and contains natural stone accents — all meticulously measured and carved. As guests arrive at the door, they are greeted by a burbling water basin (also hand-carved), pittosparum plants, and hebe hedges.

The boulder to the right is surrounded by the pink flowers of rhaphiolepis which are found throughout the garden.

Materials

  • Walkway: gray slate, natural stone accent
  • Boulder accent: rhaphiolepis hedge
  • Water basin: natural rock, gray slate border, pittosparum
