庭の入り口からの風景は、雪見燈篭と石橋の織り成す眺め。周囲の植栽や下草と溶け込ませ、石材が目立ち過ぎずお庭のキャストとして馴染む事が理想的です。

Small asian backyard full sun formal garden in Other with a water feature and natural stone pavers.

Our client has a large collection of bonsai trees and wanted an exhibition space for the extensive collection and a workshop to tend to the growing plants. Together we came up with a plan for a beautiful garden with plenty of space and a water feature. The design also included a Japanese-influenced pavilion in the middle of the garden. The pavilion is comprised of three separate rooms. The first room is features a tokonoma, a small recessed space to display art. The second, and largest room, provides an open area for display. The room can be accessed by large glass folding doors and has plenty of natural light filtering through the skylights above. The third room is a workspace with tool storage.

Beaucoup d’espace et un propriétaire n’ayant pas peur des grands projets : il n’en fallait pas plus pour voir naître cet aménagement original. Tout part d’une retenue de terre alternant roches, murets de pierres sèches et traverses en chêne disposées en jeu d’orgue. L’ensemble se pare d’une belle collection de vivaces et de sujets remarquables comme ce magnifique pin taillé en nuages. De là, s’écoule tranquillement à travers le jardin une rivière ponctuée de galets et de quelques roches. Elle croise sur son chemin un élégant potager constitué de carrés en hauteur et d’un chalet pour faciliter le travail du jardinier. Le tout est joliment ceinturé par une barrière en bois.
