A Japanese GardenContemporary Garden, Perth

A japanese garden created in combination with a herb and vegetable garden contained in weathered Cor-ten steel tanks. The dry river bed was created using recycled mild steel pieces and naturally arranged river stones. The water feature was designed in unison with Yael K Designs.

How hard is it to create?Most garden shapes and sizes can be transformed into a Zen retreat. Saying that, it’s a look that particularly lends itself to smaller spaces – perfect if you’ve got a garden or courtyard the size of a postage stamp.While flat land is easiest to work with when laying pavers or steppers, you can also create a fantastic Zen garden with subtle level changes. If you’re working with slopes, consider using retaining walls with step-downs to create different levels.

7. Meditation spaceThe reported benefits of meditation are quite similar to those of the power nap. A regular meditation practice is said to lower the heart rate, improve memory, increase cognitive function, and of course, give us more energy.

3. Waterwise plant selectionsThis garden features a contemporary dry river bed, decorative Corten screening and a selection of espaliered fruit trees. Having a sustainable garden doesn’t mean you have to miss out on edibles. Fruit trees, such as mulberry, fig, loquat and even olive, require little care and can survive well with a bit of grey water and minimal manure.It’s also a good idea when selecting plants for your garden, to choose the right plants for the specific location you have in mind. Certain plants love sandy soil and don’t need much water to thrive, whereas others, such as tropical varieties, do. Young advises to plant local indigenous plants to improve or create a sustainable habitat. Lists of local plants and suppliers can be found at your local council or online. If you are unsure, it’s always worth a trip to the local nursery to talk to some experts, or consult with a landscape designer.

This may help visualize what I created for the roof drainage, essential larger rocks contained in rusted metal underneath roof drainage location. I have created square 14" x 14" rusted steel square (open on bottom/top) that are filled with larger rock. Rock type can be your choice but I would suggest at least 2"+ to mitigate erosion where the water is coming off the roof. This is simple, works and utilizes the same material that is already used in other parts of the project
