Traditional Japanese Woodwork, Aesthetics in Pure Harmony
Japan has a rich history of artisanal woodwork and architecture. Many wooden buildings found throughout the country are expertly crafted by hand using specialized techniques and traditional tools. This results in unmatched aesthetic value that is viewed by many as an expression of pure harmony. Yokoso Japanese Gardens wants to bring this wonderful artform to the Western world and beyond.
There is a great variety of woodwork constructions that unmistakably belong to the Japanese garden. The primary example being the traditional tea house, a building that is the vocal point of many gardens in Japan. Other wooden constructions of the Japanese garden include the Koshikake and the garden gate to name just a few.
Custom Made for your Japanese Garden
The adjustability of woodwork is very important at Yokoso Japanese Gardens. Every garden or construction site is unique, which means that the sizes and dimensions of the woodwork might need to be modified. All the traditional Japanese wooden constructions by Yokoso Japanese Gardens are custom made to fit the location and the wishes of our client in the best way possible.
The Wonderful Essence of Wood
There are many different types of wood in the world, each having its own unique qualities. Some are perfect for exterior projects such as Cedar, while others are only applicable to interior use. Also important are the current prices of each wood type and making everything fit in the budget. That is why we always do a careful selection with our client on what wood type(s) to use before starting the construction process. Wood types used by Yokoso include Western Red Cedar, Abachi, Hinoki, Mahogony, Acacia and Oregon Pine among others.
