lake forest residence


What Houzz contributors are saying:

A small meditative piece in an Asian-inspired garden. Bigger is not necessarily better in a garden.
Another way to add simple Japanese elegance to your yard is to choose decorative rocks emblazoned with Japanese calligraphy and display them strategically in the yard.
Melissa Alvarado Sierra added this to Zen Gardens: Serene Outdoor Spaces
A Japanese message carved into a rock completes the serene spirit of this Zen garden designed by Kim. E Rooney.
