East Meets West
Spring / Summer: The garden awakens! Japanese Maples unfurl in brightest reds & greens. Cherry blossom, camellias, azaleas, & more decorate the landscape: flowers & foliage in full splendour. Bamboos whisper in gentle breezes. Dragonflies & damselflies hover over the swimming koi.
Autumn: Japanese maples perform spectacular colour changes: bold & soft golds, greens, oranges & reds transform the garden, before dropping gently into rest.
Winter: Fantastic shapes in wood & stone, hidden in summer, reappear now. Evergreens & winter flowering plants add colour to the winter landscape, & the slumbering trees display their intricate forms. Dramatic architecture revealed!
