At Hanselman Landscape, we train regularly in Japanese garden construction and plant development techniques. Many of our gardens contain design concepts used originally in Japanese gardens. We continue to shape these gardens using traditional Japanese methods.
As gardeners, we are inspired by the quality of garden spaces created by the Japanese through their gardening traditions. These time-honored methods produce elegant spaces imbued with a sense of unspoiled nature.
If you enjoy the beauty of nature and wish to experience high-quality artistic expressions of its presence in your daily life, a Japanese garden may be just right for you.
From the design of the gardens and the choice of materials, to the plant care techniques practiced by the maintenance crews, Hanselman Landscape follows time-honored Japanese garden traditions. But with so many garden styles to choose from, what has led Hanselman Landscape to the Japanese for inspiration?
At the heart of Hanselman Landscape's mission is the desire to learn from the best garden builders in the world. According to Doug Roth, publisher of a Japanese garden journal (Sukiya Living), "every culture is highly successful in at least one area and the Japanese are very, very good at landscape gardening." In fact, Japanese garden tradition has been under development for more than 1,000 years, and is far more refined than most people comprehend. Japanese gardens are high-quality living environments that reflect the natural beauty of the earth and respond to basic human needs.
The vision of Hanselman Landscape parallels traditional Japanese gardening culture with its careful thought, high-quality workmanship, and the desire to integrate the beauty of nature with everyday life. For this reason, each company team member is continually trained in traditional Japanese gardening methods. This training is applied to every aspect of gardening, from design to maintenance.
Regardless of the style of garden being created and nurtured, Japanese garden techniques have universal application, resulting in high-quality, enduring gardens that delight and refresh. To enjoy these values in your garden, CONTACT US.
