In this peaceful Asian garden, a pre-existing Japanese tea house and sawn granite walkway strike a beautiful visual balance. The lilac flagstone of the pathway not only complements the traditional lantern statue, but also helps to establish a clean and defined space for visitors to walk through.
Buried 5- to 10-feet deep and stabilized within recycled concrete, these flagstones create a natural border in the backyard, helping to define the surrounding green spaces. Their vertical nature effectively highlights the plants behind them and further accentuates the scale of the landscape.
Inspired by the tranquility of traditional Asian gardens, this stunning multicolored round river stone walkway encourages an intentional, quiet reflection. The meandering shape of the path defines the surrounding green spaces, while the varying sizes and textures of the stone promote concentrated steps, causing visitors to slow their pace and relax.
A fountain composed of round river stones serves as the centerpiece to this serene patio. The stacked stones create a visual balance, but they can be adjusted to the homeowner's preferences. Changing the stone pattern also creates different sounds with the water, thus encouraging the homeowner to interact with his or her environment.
