The clients had built a magnificent Italianate 'villa' with spectacular views of the Santa Barbara coastline. They had assembled an impressive array of garden objects from around the world which were to be incorporated into the gardens. But the challenges were numerous.
Object scale had to carefully managed in this 40 foot by 80 foot space -- The statuary, hardscape elements, and fountains were carefully separated throughout the landscape, in order to de-emphasize the disparate sizes. Objects included a six-foot high Buddha, a 12" high prayer bell, and a massive 1,500 pound stone urn. Additionally, spectacular tree specimens were chosen and carefully placed to provide a counterweight to the other objects in the garden.

Where to purchase rocks? - Were the rocks in the picture part of the landscape or did you purchased them? And what type of rocks are they?

The rocks are granitic - imported from the foothills of the Sierra Mountain Range in CA. They were purchased at Santa Barbara Stone in Santa Barbara, CA. They already had the moss on them.

This is an ancient bell... I would look at the auction houses and/or antique stores specializing in Asian artifacts. Best of luck. MG

It appears the one in the garden is about 2 feet tall. If so, the one for sale here is about twice as big: http://www.brosamersbells.com/miscellaneous/pages/MS36.html

Create the illusion of light by using chartreuse foliage. The human eye generally reads sunlight as having a yellowish cast. You can introduce the illusion of light into a shade garden by introducing plants with chartreuse foliage. This photograph illustrates the principle brilliantly. Don't you almost want to squint when you view this photo? On a closer look, you realize that this is a shaded area, that the effect of sunlight is an illusion.Pulling this illusion off successfully does require some skill, but here are some pointers to get you started. Begin by observing how shafts of sunlight pierce the tree canopy in your garden and the resulting shape on your garden floor. Is it an elongated triangle, a line or a patch? Leave your plants in their pots and arrange them in this pattern until the result is pleasing to you. Easier still, wait until the sunlight creates its unique shape on your garden floor, then trace the pattern with your potted plants.Some of my favorite chartreuse-leafed plants for you to consider, taking into account your specific growing conditions: 'Sun Power' and 'Sum and Substance' hostas (Hosta cvs, zones 4 to 9)'All Gold' and 'Aureola' Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra cvs, zones 4 to 9)'Orange Dream' Japanese maple (Acer palmatum 'Orange Dream', zones 5 to 9)Golden sweet flag (Acorus gramineus 'Ogon', zone 5 to 11)Scotch moss (Sagina subulata 'Aurea', zones 3 to 9) 'Skylands' Oriental spruce (Picea orientalis 'Skylands', zones 4 to 8)Note that most plants with chartreuse foliage require at least several hours of sunlight to perform properly.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Dare to Mix Things Up in the Landscape
Notice the bell and the upright boulder juxtaposed in this Asian garden. The shapes and sizes are comparable yet the colors and textures are somewhat different. This subtle contrast helps to facilitate an overall peaceful, introspective feeling in those who are fortunate enough to enjoy this garden. Can't we all use an extra dose of that?
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Philosopher
This Asian garden has a completely different look than the previous contemporary garden. You will notice, however, that the feel of this garden and your emotional response to it are likely amazingly similar to those with the previous garden. The reasons for this are that emphasis has been placed on the intrinsic value of the objects and that the placement of the objects is quite similar. Both gardens speak of boldness, simplicity and tranquility.As a garden designer, I have had clients initially convey their desire for an Asian garden. During our discussions I have helped them discover that what they really wanted was a garden that was tranquil, relaxing and thought provoking. They assumed that these characteristics mandated one style of garden design. The truth is that a purposefully designed space can meet these needs regardless of style. One such client now boasts that he has a Zen Southern plantation garden.

Notice the bell and the upright boulder juxtaposed in this Asian garden. The shapes and sizes are comparable yet the colors and textures are somewhat different. This subtle contrast helps to facilitate an overall peaceful, introspective feeling in those who are fortunate enough to enjoy this garden. Can't we all use an extra dose of that?
