A Japanese garden goes far beyond landscaping, since it uses Zen principles traditionally for replicating on a small-scale a concept that features a clear and simple universe with a perfectly balanced beauty.


"Home in a Meadow" is a Vermont project made by a landscape designer, Cynthia Knauf, together with architect Sarah Susanka. The reinterpretation of the traditional Japanese garden resulted in a distinct project that highlights natural stone used in a versatile way with amazing combinations of textures.

There are two types of Japanese gardens: Japanese rock garden, also called “dry landscape” garden and Japanese garden with a small lake in the middle. A common pattern for the first type of Japanese Garden is the symbolic presence of a stream through small pebbles that brings to mind a windind road. Other elements that can be used for recreating the natural elements (mountains, waters) are large boulders, sand, gravel and green moss. For this type of garden, plants are not excluded, only flowers are missing, for a more sober highlighting of the green shades associated with stone colors.


For terrace cladding or garden walkway, we recommend thicker tiles – to withstand the temperature variations.

Another feature of Japanese garden is the hidden, more intimate corners shaped with decoration elements, small benches or even a gazebo. The house garden with stone flooring and green moss, grown between stones complies this detail, having a garden table with chairs on the right side in the shade of a tree, a perfect picture for conveying tranquility.

How to create your own Japanese garden?

You can use Black polish pebbles, decorative pebble and Japanese garden steps (Kavala Tumbled Slate) for paving the walkway and Woodstone decorative garden stone for an impressive effect. For terrace and materials with similar look use black slate or silver polished slate and for cladding and home base Sikis Mix Slate Strips is recommended.
