Sally-Ann Livingston, Japanese Reiki Garden (PE10)
Styles: Courtyards and small terraces, Oriental, Spiritual, Suburban, Water
Soil types: Clay
Soil drainage: Moist but well-drained, Moisture-retentive
Light: Full Sun, Partial Shade
Hardiness: Hardy (H4)A Japanese inspired garden outside a small Reiki therapy room (both in progress!) within a small family garden. The garden is inspired by the Courtyard and Tearoom styles combined. It will contain a stone lantern, tsukubai (stone water bowl) and low, single bench with a woven bamboo fence, a simplified natural wood Tori gate entrance, gravel, stones and a few choice plants. Outside this enclosed section, a corner border can be seen which hopefully harmonises with the smaller Japanese Reiki room entrance garden. A dream is coming true!

The gardening project I am currently working on
