Wai Yee’s Garden
For some people, gardens are functional and simple. This design reflects the landscape architect understands the need for simplicity and purpose. In the front, the entryway of interlocking paving stones swirls in circles and semi-circles to the doorway. A rough prehistoric stone juts out, stones sliding off it. This subtly breaks up the regularity and connects the entryway with the nearby garden frontage. Here, small plantings emerge from a large, pebbled base. Colours break into the regular form and create their own pattern. All is simple, but effective.
In the back yard, simplicity and function combine in the patio of stone blocks. Boxing it in are concrete block planters. The overall look is simple and functional. The manipulation of materials also creates an intimate space for small gatherings.
