Eastern Garden

Places of harmony with zen gardens or bonsai.

Eastern gardening is about making your garden a space of peace, tranquility and harmony. Each part should be subtle, with none overpowering any other. Elements should flow gracefully into the landscape, creating a balanced whole that encourages contemplation and rest.

In creating an Eastern garden you can rely heavily on a variety of stalwart plants, such as Nandina Domestica, Bamboo varieties, Acers, Mondo Grass, Azaleas and Camellias.

You should also incorporate hard landscaping materials like gravel, rocks and stone. The sound and movement of water is another very important aspect, so create ponds, build water features or place bird baths in your garden design.
