Japanese Garden
The small triangular garden at Waltham Place like its Japanese counterparts is a place of symbolism, of meaning in the use of the material of which it is composed. It is essentially a composition whose balance and proportion create a deeper and subtler impact than masses of colour ever can. It is an area of foliage plants (particularly bamboos and Japanese maples), and beautifully placed stones and water. The Japanese garden is a place for meditation in which life’s cares might be forgotten.
