General:
The owner began planting azaleas, rhododendrons, and boxwoods almost 50 years ago. The owner learned how to apply Asian principles to gardening from a visiting Japanese landscape designer about 20 years ago. Flowering shrubs and trees are kept to a minimum. The goal of the garden is to incorporate the Zen aesthetics of self-discipline and austerity. Two acres of moss are intersected by over 1,400 feet of winding gravel trails and an INGA strolling path. The garden features bridges, dry "waterfalls" and stonework. There are also six gates to the garden, each with its own symbolism.
A person associated with the garden includes: Hiroshi Makita (designer-carpenter, 1981-1986).
