Case Study

Botanical Garden of the Ozarks

This design was the result of a competition and originally one of ten temporary display gardens. Each designed to show homeowners themed ideas of what could be done in the space the size of a modest back yard in Northwest Arkansas. The gardens became permanent as visitors grew to love them. Entering along the stone path, you cross a dry streambed that leads to a lush koi pond. You will notice the main features of the garden – the Japanese garden entry gate and the matching pavilion that offers a place to sit and enjoy the quiet. The garden contains a series of Japanese specimen plants such as Chamaecyparis, Azaleas, and Deodora Cedar.

Project Info

Interesting fact: the raised portion of the bench inside the pavilion was originally designed to be the base of a ‘cage’ that would contain the garden’s collection of bonsai trees.
