Japanese Garden Deventer
A client from Deventer, the Netherlands assigned Yokoso Japanese Gardens to improve a small courtyard. There were already some Japanese influences present, like a richly decorated Kasuga lantern and a beautiful Koi pond, but the client had the desire of a full-fledged authentic Japanese garden. For the restyling, the old black gravel was removed and replaced by original Japanese Shirakawa gravel from the Shirakawa river in Japan. In the gravel is a stepping stone path, in Japanese ‘Tobi-ishi‘, laid out by Kurama stepping stones from an old Japanese garden in Nagoya. The separation between the border and the gravel is built up by means of vertically placed old Japanese roof tiles, creating an interesting and unique pattern.

The Kasuga lantern was moved to a more fitting spot in the garden and a beautiful Kurama Tsukubai and granite stepping stones were added. These stepping stones were not combined with gravel, but rather a combination of ground cover plants such as Ophiopogon and Leptinella. These are the perfect alternative for mosses which are hard to grow and maintain. Especially Leptinella grows relatively quickly to form a dense green ‘carpet‘. The existing planting has been supplemented with a Japanese Azalea form tree, Japanese Enkianthus, Azalea bulbs, accent plants such as Hakonechloa and Japanese forest grass. In the next phase, next to the stepping stone path, a form tree, Japanese white pine, will be placed to complete the garden.
