A landscape designer is a specialist in curb appeal, or the appearance of your home. Beautiful landscaping in any area serves as a reminder of nature, even in the middle of a bustling city, as this article about the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park shows.
The Japanese Friendship Garden, also known as San Kei En is a Japanese Garden within Balboa Park, San Diego. It is an expression of friendship between San Diego and its sister city Yokohama that binds the two cultures to create a unique experience for visitors from all over the world. Representing a new concept in the development of a Japanese garden outside of Japan, the Japanese Friendship Garden is designed to present an atmosphere of elegant simplicity (shibui) and quiet beauty. The design is guided by the original principles of the Japanese garden while incorporating elements of the regional landscape and climate.
A garden is always in a state of change but the basic elements of trees, shrubs, rocks and water designed in natural balance create a peaceful, harmonious, and transcendental environment conducive to contemplation and meditation.
