The whole thing built in a garden

Post by Stevenloan » Thu Mar 23, 2017 4:00 pm

Hi everyone! What do you call this whole thing (the small pond, the small trees and the stones) built in a garden, a back yard or a front yard?

Thanks very much!

Usually, we'd call that a water garden, water feature or pond. Somehow, those terms seem a little too simple for something that elaborate. It's a beaut.

In England that style would probably be described as a Japanese Water Garden. The Japanese get the credit irrespective of where they are.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.

We would probably say the same thing in Wales Tony.

And in Aus we would follow suit and say the same thing.
