Japanese-Inspired Garden

Create areas of interest with architectural elements such as screens and benches.

Homeowner Mona Zaidi, a filmmaker and writer, planted this garden for maximum impact in all four seasons. Reed matting framed in cedar is a gorgeous alternative to more traditional types of fencing.
