It is designed as a showcase for plants from Thailand as well as focusing on a way of life away from the cities.

Visitors to the garden will be able to cross the river into a lush garden and pass by an accurate recreation of a Thai Sala.

This Thai Sala is located on the opposite side of the river with steps down to the waters edge. This serves as a shelter from the rain and the sun and becomes somewhere to rest and contemplate away from the house. The steps to the water allow the house owner to leave daily offerings to passing Buddhist Monks along the river.

The water is a recreation of a river edge in Thailand; it will be circulating and will hold some sediment in the water.
