As the definition of ‘fusion’ is the process or result of joining two or more things together to form a single entity, such was the inspiration for this Japanese Garden project.
We have been working with this particular owner for over 10 years and have transformed this space from the ground up. The back yard resembled more of an urban wasteland when we started, and due to extremely poor drainage, the area became very swampy in the winter. With no viable fence in place, chunks of cement buried in the ground, and an old dilapidated shed, we literally wiped the slate clean (so to speak), and started from scratch.
By building raised garden beds all around the perimeter, this keeps the water spillage from neighbouring properties from running into this particular yard. We then replaced the old cement slabs and recycled them as massive paving stones, including adding stain here and there for extra pops of colour. We planted the serene bamboo hedge which compliments the decks and hot tub cover we also designed and constructed.
Through incorporating show pieces that we sourced and collected over the last 10 years with the client, a ‘zen-like’ feeling now permeates this back yard haven. Some of these amazing pieces strewn throughout the garden were over 80 years old and well-established.
NOTE: This client has now purchased a new home and we have already started working on landscaping their new outdoor living space.« back to projects
