Japanese Garden

Japanese Garden Spring 2018

The Japanese Garden named “Tranquility” is a combination of an ancient “Hill and Pond” style garden, and a “Japanese Stroll Garden”. All four elements (air, fire, water, and earth) are represented in the garden.

  • Air is represented by the movement of the bamboo and weeping willow, and also in the way the trees are pruned to look like windswept clouds.
  • Fire is represented in the red paint on the bridge and lanterns.
  • Water is represented by the gray gravel, river rocks and water feature.
  • Earth is represented in the rocks, plants and mulch.

Discover native plants of Japan and a profound feeling of inner peace as you walk the path of enlightenment. End where you began after crossing the bridge of self-reflection, representing the passage of time and the cycle of life.
