A Contemplative Japanese Garden

A Tucked Away Japanese Garden Retreat

A beautiful copper bell was the inspiration for this Japanese Garden.  It was a special piece that belonged to the client and it needed to have a prominant place in the newly designed landscape.

The property was already fenced in for privacy and security because of an existing pool, but the back yard was never developed.  We put in a stepping stone  flagstone path with a sitting area for a bench to sit and admire the bell and contemplate the restful environment.

Boulders with Mazus reptans, a very low ground cover  that acts as a moss substitute, was used to give that Japanese garden feeling.  Because of the path that now exists and travels through the garden to get to the bench and bell, the area seems so much larger than when it was all grass and creates lovely views while enjoying the pool.
