Asian Inspired Rock Garden

Crossing the threshold of this garden, the experience of an Asian inspired garden begins. The overall design of this project borrows from a subtle technique traditionally used in Japanese strolling gardens. Strategically placed “pauses” are incorporated into the meandering pathway causing the visitor to slow or temporarily stop their passage through the garden. These intentional pauses in turn cause, or focus, the visitor’s attention on certain elements that the designer wishes for the visitor to be present for. In this case vistas of the rookery island, sculptural elements, garden art and a famous architecturally significant church are all highlighted at various points along the garden stroll.
