A new japanese garden in Eden

Postby nevilleh » April 15th, 2015, 9:16 pm

Having built a house in Eden over the last two years and sold our house in Canberra (with Japanese Garden) I was keen to develop another. This time it is smaller - a courtyard garden. Still a work in progress but happy with it none the less.

Nice, looks like you've built yourself the "garden of...Eden" :whistle:
I'm pretty sure that's not the first time you heard that... :yes:

stunning, Love the large viewing window and clean lines. I'm tempted to ask for shots of the house as well!

Eden hey,
That's going to quite the drive to attend the CBS meetings.

I love the little alcove with the maple. Just fantastic.
So the Redwood turns to the Bonsai and says "Lend me a Tenner"......
