A new japanese garden in Eden

Post by 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!

Yes inside a minimalist design- the front of the house looks like this.

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"......

It has come along well.
The growing season is long compared to Canberra.

Here are some images

Maturing nicely. Looks like a bit more rain than we get in Canberra as well...
