With honor and reverence for the natural world, the Japanese influence allows us to borrow and emulate the true essence of the pervading natural world. It offers an insight into self-reflection and introspection.
The Japanese inspired garden is subtle, inspiring and empowering in its overall simplicity and beauty. It borrows the embodiment of nature distilling it into a reverent experience that is both memorable and profound.
Light and shadow play a vital part in the subtle beauty of the Japanese garden. As the day comes to a close, the shadows become longer and more dramatic — imparting an inner rhythm to the garden that is always evolving — making the whole experience richer and memorable. If we remain open to this experience we become imprinted with the richness of the experience.
