After our house was built, the gardener began to build our garden.
Since the builder is usually different from the gardener,
I searched for a gardener in the internet.
The reason I chose the gardener was that his works had good quality and a sense of simplicity
Since I didn’t know the kinds of trees and flowers well,I requested ” I want some trees which could bear fruits for my children.Otherwise, please make the garden which you think that trees matche our house.”
Then the gardener selected assorted trees from a manufacture.
The main tree, kousa dogwood, was planted in the center of the garden of my house.
And the gardener planted the other trees which were lavender, catmint,
maple and fraxinus griffithii around the main tree.
The concept of the garden is simple and one tree doesn’t stand out as many trees surround my house securely.
This garden though small is a natural world where birds, insects, lizard,
praying mantis and cats come.
And my children can eat some blueberrys and juneberrys during the summer.
The gardener site is called “Atrie boku アトリエ朴”
( Japanese only but there are many beautiful works)
