Garden Gallery: A Polish Japanese Garden

Or maybe I should rephrase and say a Japanese style garden in a suburb of the polish city of Warsaw…

I have been working on a bigger post about specific Japanese garden design styles (hint: there isn’t just one and it isn’t called zen) so this garden from Ogrody magazine caught my eye.  Outside of japan we seem to have this tendency to lump all the elements of their various design styles into one big style (which we have generically called ‘zen’).  I generally works, but some times (like here, to some extent) I think it can get a bit busy and loose some of its intended meaning.   Regardless, I still like this garden and it caught my attention for its great mix of ideas — like the red circle in the wall, and the under-lit paths.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
