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.
