Lush Garden Oasis

A range of heights will draw the eye up and around the garden, including a mix of green textures for year-round delight.

Refined Plantings

Subtlety is another feature of most Asian gardens with a mix of flowering trees and shrubs and rocks, from small pebbles to big boulders.

Quiet Meditation

A meditation spot was tucked into a corner with a Buddha surrounded by bamboo rising vertically and pebbles running horizontally.

Asian Influences

Rocks of varying sizes, an oversized Asian statue and a mix of textured plantings are essential components for an Zen-style garden.
