Natural boulders and rocks were worked into the design of this Asian-inspired front yard. Ornamental grasses, pieris Japonica, loropetalum and other low-maintenace plants fit with the garden's Zen feel while being easy to care for so the homeowners can maintain the garden's simple appeal.
Beautiful flowering plants and manicured hedges surround the sophisticated crushed gravel patio and koi pond. Hand-stacked stone above the waterfall mimic architectural elements found in other parts of the garden.
To guide the eye through the garden, layers of pruned boxwood become central focal points that engage the visitor. Using the same plant in varying shapes and heights highlights the unique spaces within the formal garden and the artistry of a manicured, clipped hedge.
This stone bench has been constructed by simply placing a stone slap atop two boulders to create garden seating with rustic appeal. The neatly manicured garden features classic foliage plants and ornamental grass accented by red bark mulch.
