Step out the door into the peaceful Asian-inspired garden of this modern home. Concrete slabs create walkways and a bridge across the rectangular pond. Gravel beds and ornamental grasses keep the landscaping low maintenance.
Japanese Garden with Wildflowers, Plants, and a Succulent in a Pedestal Pot
A centerpiece in this modern, Japanese garden is a simple-yet-stunning planter set on a pedestal, containing a single succulent. Stepping stones lead to and around the pot, creating a path to visit and admire it and the surrounding plants and flowers.
During the day, the pavilion's metal roof offers relief from the sun's rays. As they sit on the wood floor below, the owners can dip their feet into the water and listen to the soft sounds of their environment.
Multicolored Round River Stone Walkway Encourages Reflection in Asian Garden
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.
The largest challenge this project presented can't be seen at first glance, but sits just below the surface of the garden. In order to preserve the reflecting pond and associated eco-systems from washing out, the landscape architects needed to capture the surface water from several surrounding neighbors and divert it underground. The result is an outdoor space that seems effortless, yet is entirely innovative.
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.
Japanese Garden Featuring Square Wood Planters and Native Plants
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.
Tribeca Roof Terrace with Moss Path Leading to Spa
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.
