Small Japanese Garden in Eindhoven (2023)
Based on the Kyomachiya gardens of traditional Kyoto homes
A couple living in Eindhoven, in the South of the Netherlands, visited our Japanese Garden Store in search of small elements to add to their garden. After seeing our Demonstration Garden, they decided that a Tsukubai arrangement with a Chozubachi water basin and Ikekomi lantern would be the perfect addition. The initial plan was that they would make their own design and install everything themselves, but our thorough advice and expertise convinced them to task us with the complete creation of the Japanese garden of their dreams.
The garden design was based on the Kyomachiya gardens of traditional Kyoto homes. A small-scale garden with a careful mix of ornamental rocks, plants, trees, a Tsukubai arrangement and a path of stepping stones. The design was immediately approved with much enthusiasm, after which the construction was planned.
Our respected Japanese landscaper Mizuno-san carried out the construction of the garden all by himself, with great success. The clients were very satisfied with the final results, being able to enjoy their beautiful Japanese garden for many years to come.
