Water Wise Japanese Garden

Our clients wanted a water wise garden in the Japanese aesthetic. Using native and drought tolerant plantings, we selected and placed accent boulders in accordance with the Japanese tradition of asymmetrical balance, and added color and texture without relying on flowers. 

Flagstone pathways divide the garden into sections, and as each plant comes into bloom, regions of the garden are highlighted according to the season.

Plantings include:

  • Japanase Maple
  • Heuchera
  • Mondo Grass
  • etc.
