3 Essentials to a Successful Asian Landscape
Design for Your Garden
2
Asian Landscape Design
  • The Asian landscape design is known for its
    calming atmosphere.
  • Using this theme for your garden makeover is
    ideal when you want a place for meditation, day
    in and day out.
  • Asian-inspired landscaping can fit gardens of all
    sizes, transforming even the narrow, unused
    spaces in your yard to a functional and tranquil
    oasis.
  • You can work with a landscape designer so you can
    choose appropriate decors for your garden. Or,
    you can also complete the job yourself although
    this one is most likely to turn out extra
    challenging.

  • Planning your calendar ahead of time  should help
    make things a little easier for you. On the other
    hand, should you decide to work with a
    professional landscape designer, here are a few
    landscaping tips to consider.

4
Gather Design Ideas
  • Begin by gathering inspirations for the landscape
    project.
  • Go online and take note of landscape ideas you
    like, or drive or walk around the neighborhood.
  • Notice how the design concept flows and take a
    look as well at the common plant types used.
  • Then, study the current layout of your garden.

5
Plan the Layout of your New Garden
  • The size of your yard bears an impact to the
    final design youd be applying throughout the
    garden.
  • If your garden is wide, you can add stone
    pathways to lead guests from one part of your
    landscape to another.
  • You can as well have bamboo walls constructed to
    lend privacy to the space or to obstruct view of
    eyesores throughout your garden.
  • Another strategy you can try is planning the
    layout of your new garden from your window view.
    Create a visual scenery that you can enjoy even
    from indoors.

6
Incorporate Asian Art Pieces Carefully
  • Be careful about decors youre adding to your
    garden.
  • Art pieces are important as they highlight the
    Asian feel of your garden.  
  • One of the most iconic figures you can consider
    adding is Buddhas.
  • However, you may want to go for a statue that
    shows the entire body of Buddha.
  • Displaying only the head statue can seem
    disrespectful.

7
Asian Sculptures
  • Other elements you can check out are lanterns or
    sculptures. You can also add a Japanese fountain
    or a beautiful koi pond.
  • Koi pond types can vary depending on your
    preferences as well as the location where you
    want the water feature installed.
  • Of course your Asian landscape design wouldnt be
    complete without the plants.
  • You can feature a Japanese maple tree, Hosta
    plants, or ferns.  
  • For Asian sculptures such as pagoda towers, be
    sure to do it sparingly so they dont visually
    dominate the place, and the calming ambiance of
    your garden is sustained.

8
Remember, Less is More
  • Do away from the clutter.
  • Keep in mind that youre aiming to achieve a
    sense of peace in your garden. Dont fill up your
    entire property with plants, and keep your plant
    choices simple.
  • Your Asian garden should create an ambiance that
    invites visitors to pause for a while and
    contemplate.
  • Once the project has been completed, make sure to
    follow it up with a regular maintenance schedule.
  • Keep the beauty and peace in your garden for an
    authentic Asian landscape design experience.
