The Zen garden outside this home gives the family a great space for relaxation. Inspired by an Asian garden, the bonsai trees, koi pond and Asian statues give the family the perfect spot for meditation.
This welcoming Zen garden draws the eye by placing statues, stones and a prayer bell in a gracefully meandering path. Foliage, like the miniature Japanese maples, provide a backdrop for the focal points.
Even the fencing is extraordinary -- all Brazilian handcrafted hardwood with bronze detailing. No matter which side of the garden they stand on, guests will enjoy views of the wood, stone paths and ornamental grasses.
A wall of Devonshire limestone encloses the garden, emulating the shape of a traditional Tansu chest. The treasure within is just as extraordinary, with sculpted pine trees, rare Japanese Maples and a hedge of weeping cherries enlivening the landscape.
A garden of lush grasses and shrubs are cocooned in a sculptural woven bowl called The Nest. Evoking a sense of protection and tranquility, The Nest is centered on the idea of the home as a warm, cozy retreat from the world.
While the original design leaned heavily on Asian-inspired aesthetics, it was also necessary to integrate some indigenous flowering options for the yard's pollinators. The result is a blend of traditional Asian structure and form, with colorful flowers and shrubs.
A small courtyard separates the driveway from the garden, with a circular entry that exudes serenity. Stone paths guide visitors around various trees and plants, with rocks along the way for sitting and reflecting.
Made from northern white-cedar and bamboo, this quiet pavilion beautifully complements its woodland surroundings. A small reflecting pond and lush vegetation all around ensure that the owners will want to sit and enjoy this space for hours.
Inspired by the tranquility of traditional Asian gardens, this stunning multicolored round river stone walkway encourages an intentional, quiet reflection. The meandering shape of the path defines the surrounding green spaces, while the varying sizes and textures of the stone promote concentrated steps, causing visitors to slow their pace and relax.
This gorgeous garden gets less structured and more native the farther you get away from the home. Large square planters contain succulents and flowers in an orderly manner, while native plants and ornamental grasses take over as the land extends in the distance. A wood deck provides a perfect vantage point to enjoy the Japanese-style garden.
To bring homeowners from their modern indoor space to their luxury outdoor spa, designers added a mossy green path. The moss on the path compliments the rest of the greenscape and leads comfortably to the Diamond Spa.
