5 of the most prominent Asian Landscape ideas
Aug 01, 2017

Sure you are definitely well aware of all the landscape trends that have been abound in the past few years, not to mention the main fact that you consider yourself an expert on the matter. Since you have been at it for the last couple of years as well as putting most of your ideas to full fruition on your very own piece of land, there is truly no reason for you to think that you have forgotten something or are missing out on the more unique aspects of landscaping as a whole. Right?

Well, not really. I really hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but yes, hard as this may be for you to initially believe, there is indeed plenty of aspects you would have missed out on simply because they ended up slipping under your radar in general. In fact, this is the case with a great number of people out there. Now bear in mind that we are talking specifically about landscapes that happen to have a far-eastern flair to them. Think a prominently large and visible influence from a chinese or singapore landscape design and you’re not that far off.

On that very note, let’s get right to it and talk about some of the more prominent varieties of a number of Asian inspired landscapes that are not only gorgeous to look at, but very practical in design as well as implementation and installation to boot. :-

A relaxation gateway

Now this one consists of a bluestone pathway leading up to a Asian style gate that is flanked with pachysandra to boot. The gate stands out the most in the backdrop plus there are multiple innovative spins of the same design.

Outdoor dining

With this particular landscape idea being a Japanese-style garden, one is greeted by a sunken dining area as well as a tatami room to boot. Paper lanterns, a green and pink vase as well as a dry river of crushed quartz and huge quartz boulders add to the finish.


In this landscape idea, one is greeted by a much more intimate space with more rich and vivid colours as well as lusher textures with the curved timber daybed with the beautiful reflection pond afloat with lotuses and water lillies.

The path of tranquility

Here, one can clearly see the sheer contrast and vividity of colours alone with Japanese maples and the dark red plum trees making a gorgeous contrast with lavender to boot. Truly a scenic beauty to behold.

A private retreat

Now this particular landscape idea is truly a garden to be proud of in the best sense of the word. With crane fountains, a towering statue of Buddha and a large pond with a host of tropical plants, the final picture is truly a wonder to behold.

Finally, no matter how much of an expert you may think of yourself, it would be worthwhile to note that there are always new ideas and aspects floating around and you would do good to be more open-minded with regard to trying them out as well. After all, that’s pretty much the only way that one can hope to grow as much as possible as well as broadening one’s horizons in the best and most refreshing possible way. Landscaping is a wonderful and nurturing art to boot and in order to get the best results, one needs to be open to taking influences from literally anywhere and everywhere.
