Japanese garden tour, Kyoto, November 2009

Our recent trip to Japan as the autumn leaves were starting to turn was filled with awe inspiring sights that have motivated us to create ‘Australian’ Japanese gardens and take the opportunity to share some of the images captured with you.

Kyoto is often referred to as the ‘heart of Japan’ and is filled with an amazing range of Japan’s cultural heritage sites. The sensory experiences of being in these places and gardens, the visual harmony and feeling of inspiration was sensational.

Whether large or small, Japanese gardens have immediate impact. Their stillness and serenity and affinity with nature is deeply moving. The gardens visited had an atmosphere of harmony, balance, a sense of unity of composition and used symbolism to great advantage.

By extracting elements such as the unique application of rocks, water, ponds, gravel and pebbles, bridges and paths and embracing principles such as the importance of viewpoints and scale we intend to develop Japanese gardens suited to an Australian climate. By applying our best practice garden design principles, utilising Australian plants and adapting basic concepts, we believe we’ll come up with some truly impressive outdoor spaces.

Contact us now to explore the possibilities for your Japanese styled garden.

Provincial Plants and Landscapes cultivates excellence with major environment award win

At the recent annual 2010 Nursery & Garden Industry NSW and ACT Awards held in Sydney, Provincial Plants and Landscapes was presented with the ‘NGI Environment Award’ and recognised for its exceptional performance and outstanding achievements over the past year.

As State winner for NSW and the ACT, Lisa Roberts, Owner of Provincial Plants and Landscapes said “it is great to be recognised for practicing what we preach.  We are conscious of our impact on the environment and our ability to make a difference in our own backyard.  We really strive to be sustainable in our daily business practices and in the work that we do. It is also great recognition for our team!” 

The ‘NGI Environment Award’ is a highly competitive award that is open to all industry businesses and acknowledges business initiative to environmental management or community participation in relation to environmental issues.

“What we do is really unique,” said Lisa. “Our chemical free native nurseries operate primarily on renewable energy and practice water use minimisation, our landscape products are boutique and handcrafted, we undertake revegetation projects and create or remodel gardens to be eco-friendly.  A large part of what we do is about public education and I’d like to think that we can be a role model by showing that it is easy to be sustainable, successful and make a difference in the community.”
