This courtyard uses classic Japanese style to exaggerate perspective, creating the illusion of a much larger space. The plants provide a backdrop for the statue and the pathways, rather than acting as a focal point themselves.
In the Zen Garden, designers used materials that would complement the structure of the modern home, while creating a relaxing space for the homeowners. Modern concrete steps lead out into the space, while gravel paths create a neutral, soothing scene and cedar benches add space for relaxation.
Asian Garden Folly With Cushioned Seating and Lap Pool
The garden folly in this Zen backyard is an open-air structure fabricated and carved from solid reclaimed teak. The pyramid roof is finished with copper fish-tail shingles, and teak steps lead to the pool. The gorgeous tropical paradise features lounge chair seating padded with layers of cushion. Tropical plants frame the area, creating privacy.
