I like the look of this garden.
the symmetry of the garden and the layout.
of the garden room. The movement introduced the creation of separate garden rooms, giving each part of the garden a different feel.The great British gardens of this era — at Hidcote Manor, Sissinghurst and Great Dixter — all have partitioned areas of the larger garden that have different planting schemes

color of rock was used here? Thank you;)
crushed rock paths uses enriched thresholds and intersections of stone.
like the whole think. like the rose trees in the scput garden area
parterre gardens traditionally contained some sort of focal point or central feature around which the rest of the garden was designed. This statue is beautiful and looks to be the focal point of this yard. Fountains or other water features are also fantastic anchors to the garden, and, for extra credit
shelters a garden bench, but it also serves as a frame to highlight a classical sundial placed at the cross section of two intersecting pathways, transforming a once-unnoticed corner of the garden into a charming focal point.

Japanese sand garden style with rocks and water and a perhaps couple of plants
Looks like a garden in Kyoto
Zen gardens are designed to create a stripped-down awareness of thought.
In rock gardens. Rock gardens are unique growing environments, and not all plants will appreciate the arid conditions. In addition to alpine plants, there are some ground covers that flourish in these conditions and can create
interesting, low-maintenance and miniature gardens. Knawel cushion (Scleranthus biflorus, zones 9 to 11) is a truly fascinating specimen that will likely become a feature in your rock garden. This slow growing, mound-forming plant provides a dense carpet of green foliage that will slowly creep over the surrounding

The rock I used to cover the planting beds, which we call rock mulch, is a ¾ “ drain rock. Drain rock is usually available in most parts of the country in a variety of sizes. Rock Mulch, or Decorative Landscape Rock is often sold at landscape supplies business and can also vary greatly depending the
Decorative Rock available. It has more texture and a neutral color that reminds me of some of the rock used in the gardens of Kyoto. Certainly not an exact match but similar feeling. I also like the fact that it’s local and not imported from out of our area. - Tom Musselwhite
particular rock is unique to an area southwest of Spokane and comes from several different quarries. It is a natural glacial tilled basalt aggregate that is screened and offered in a variety of sizes and used mostly for construction purposes. I have always preferred this rock over the granite aggregates
Raised Stone Garden BedsShepherd Stoneworks
We just bought a house and our back yard has septic tank/large leaching field, so limited space for veg garden. If I make these elegant raised beds I'd still need to line them with something so the roots of veggies don't reach down into leaching field. We're in greater Boston area. Any
around my garden. Beautifully done stonework with a very peaceful zen vibe. Thank you for your answer.
The paving is laid in 1/4" minus crushed rock, also known as Rock Sand and Paver Base.
Great idea for the slope in the garden
The neat gardening with little weeding to do.
Raised gardens - not the standard raised boxes
Now that is a dream garden.
Start a garden journal. If you don't already keep one, consider beginning a dedicated garden journal. Filled with your notes on what you planted and how each plant fared, this little notebook will be worth its weight in gold when planting time comes again.5.

gravel rock permanent and if so with what ?
What kind of gravel would be good for a zen garden like this? I love this ok.
Big rock or sand out front??
landscape with gravel/rock - Zen type
For the real source of minimalism, we should look to the Zen gardens of Japan. The perfectly placed rocks set in immaculate gravel, raked into swirling patterns
the Zen gardens of Japan. The perfectly placed rocks set in immaculate gravel, raked into swirling patterns, are pure minimalism.Japanese gardens were created in the pursuit of spirital balance, but in the West this has become a garden style.
and a garden may be the prime spot for personal revival.

Did you make the water feature or what is pre made? Would u be able to direct me where I could obtain it or find instructions on how to build it...Love your landscaping
the dish rock, place a figerglass grate across the reservoir, and place the dish rock so that an access hatch will allow us to remove the pump and work on the plumbing. Here are a couple images. We dig a hole, put in some sand to buffer against punctures from the soil, install pond liner, install concrete
lots of water in the reservoir so you don't have to fill it up all the time. The negatives are that there is a water sound of dripping into the reservoir that, while pleasant, doesn't quite jive with what you are seeing.

What kind of rock is used under the chair?
Love the water feature. Consider this yet another plea for you to Please share DIY instructions with those of us in awe of your talented work!
Can you tell me what materials were used to construct the water feature?
I am refinishing heart pine floors in my living room and kitchen and can't decide if I should go with oil or water base poly. I have three young children and am concerned about the toxic fumes. We can leave the house for about five days. Any advice? I like the durability and look
can you send me any photos or designs you did to make the water feature i would love to do this for my wife as a anniversary present. firstname.lastname@example.org
The water feature is plate steel.
Water TowersJeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture
It would seem as though the water would evaporate pretty quickly as I'm here in FL. Is this real stone or the fake stuff, and how much $$$?
nakos rock center in Seattle sells a similar product
almost any water feature you can provide. And if that water feature does double duty as a sculptural element, so much the better.
Would like water feature in new garden
Great rock shape. Would also look great with succulents spilling over and draping sides.
Natural looking water source for wildlife
pocket garden using succulents: this time, the plants are clustered around a large stone “water tower” that looks like the perfect drinking fountain for birds.
