The homeowners of this Colorado landscape travel extensively, and they wanted to bring some of that international flavor and ambiance home. Landscape architect Keith Anderson created an award-winning landscape that includes three distinct themes, including this picturesque Asian garden.
The space is designed as a stroll-through garden, says Anderson. "It takes you on a path to a series of destinations.”
Part of the path uses chocolate flagstone with Mexican beach stone as a mortar joint. The stones are set flush and are very comfortable to walk on. "We turned the Mexican beach stones on edge. We've had only one stone come loose in the last couple of years," says Anderson. Elsewhere in the landscape, stones cascade along a path to mimic water.
