a shady courtyard of pebbles and brick paths, filled with acers, hellebores, ferns and grasses. A Buddha crafted from blue Karnataka stone, sits beneath Acer palamatum. I would love to have the space for this.
Japanese gardens rely on subtle color contrast and bold textural differences to create interest. Here chartreuse and green hostas surround the base of a tree while variegated hakone grass softens the edge of the bed.
Japanese garden. I'm hoping this is harmony! You have the repeating curvy shape of the tree, the bush, and the garden sculpture. The different element would be the man made sculpture vs nature, but it still works due to the shape.
