Water play! with a Japanese/Zen twist!
Marybyrnong project completed March 2015. Design and plantscaping completed by Inspiring Landscape Solutions.
- draw on design principles associated with Japanese gardens. The owners have a fond association of Japanese culture and have made many trips to Japan;
- keeping it simple and matching the interior of the house;
- to be enjoyed from the rest of the groundfloor area;
- the ‘green lung’ to the house;
- to be able to sit within that space; and
- the water feature must not be too noisy.
- application of unconventional design aesthetics where the decking cut out resembles a river flow;
- one side of the decking is wide enough for a sitting area;
- the dark natural slate used in the water feature shimmers with the cascading water; and
- soothing water cascade sound effect when turned on.
