What Houzz contributors are saying:
Asian fusionMany modern generically ‘Asian-style’ gardens make use of circular openings and motifs to convey an Eastern feel. In this Sydney garden, in response to a client’s wish for an Asian aesthetic, Dean Herald from Rolling Stone Landscapes fused classic elements of rocks, bamboo and water with a contemporary stone wall, a moon aperture and Japanese maples.
Eastern influence. This expansive backyard has been transformed into a stunning Zen-influenced garden. The impressive water feature works as a visual end point, and the entertaining area is positioned close by so the owners and their guests can appreciate the soothing sounds of water running.
Use Japanese motifs in a modern wayIn this Eastern-inspired garden in Sydney, the designer has used classic elements of Japanese gardens – rocks, a moon gate, water, Japanese maples and bamboo. But he has cleverly adapted them to a more contemporary style so the garden is a fusion of both influences.
