Phase 1D | The Garden Expansion Continues
The planned focus of Phase 1D is the development of the Japanese Garden and Beargrass Creek Overlook. A tree allée of 24 American Dream Swamp White Oak trees will lead to the Overlook which has a beautiful view of Beargrass Creek. The Japanese Garden was designed by Nakane & Associates of Kyoto, Japan. Fundraising is under way for this authentic Japanese Garden.
The two-acre Japanese Garden will include a waterfall and pond, tea house, summer house, authentic bridges, a cherry tree promenade, a bonsai garden and more. Shiro Nakane of Nakane and Associates has been designing gardens for decades, following in the footsteps of his father. This will be a garden of meditation and peace, a respite from the busy world around us. Plants used in this garden will be both native and non-native. Large rocks will be placed throughout, which is typical in a Japanese garden.
