Daily Garden: Modern Japanese

This daily garden was created by Mindscape in a residential garden in Japan.

Thankfully a picture is worth a thousand words, because, the entire site is in Japanese.  But if you read Japanese and want to know more about the project, click here. mindscape japanese residential modern garden

It seems to me that there are a plethora of ideas to take away from this design.  I have a penchant for stripes, so organizing a design in this fashion is always appealing to me.  Filling the extra wide gaps between the concrete with colorful stone is interesting.

I am also quite drawn to the straight stemmed mini trees against the fence.  They are so airy, so straight stemmed and orderly.  Does anyone have an idea about what they might be? What is your favorite part?

Spread the love

    I love the trees to, but I’m not sure what they are. The stripes are lovely – I don’t think they would look half as good if the grass wasn’t allowed to grow just that little bit. They make me think of Japanese textile prints. Beautiful.
