New Project: Albany Japanese Garden

The home owner of this Albany property wanted a garden that would draw him off the back deck into a tranquil seating area surrounded by low water and low maintenance plantings.  
The Arizona Buckskin Buff flagstone patio is off center toward the back fence.  In order to get to the patio, one must cross the creek by either a flagstone 'bridge' or stepping stone in the center of the creek.
A wooly Thyme pathway connects the 'bridge' to the patio. 

Another special feature in this garden are the recycled Cedar tree roots.  There is a large stump remaining from a Cedar tree that was taken down long before the current owner arrived.  As we were planting we came across large pieces of the root system.  We removed them and peeled the outer layer of bark to expose the beautiful treasure beneath.  Here is one incorporated into the creek bank.

Repeating Acacia cognata 'Cousin It' will provide the grounding shrubs for this Japanese garden.  Varying shades of green foliage capture the essence of serenity.  Blooming perennials such as Kangaroo paw, Salvia and Rock rose provide color and interest attractive to beneficial insects and birds.

  2. As a scaled down scene, the stones in the garden would speak to mountains and the lakes would speak to lakes. A space loaded with sand would speak to a sea. By that we expect that garden experts were hoping to accomplish a moderate approach, best spoke to by the expression "toning it down would be best". Dan

  8. The size of your shed may depend on the available area in which you have to build. This can be a challenge in smaller yards or in yards that have severe slopes. It may be that you need a total of 100 square feet of flooring, but you have a long and narrow area to build on. free shed plan

  17. Garden designing includes the walls and pavements to be colored brightly, as opposed to bringing them down. It is convenient to grow a garden over the pavement Bill, instead of having to create a pavement over the gardens. Often, it is the carefully nurtured natural, unhindered growth of plants which lends that different turn to the garden. Hence, garden designing is not just about getting the style right. It is approximately applying the right designs for the right homes cape.
