Custom bamboo screens frame the view of a feature at the end of a stepping stone path. The subsurface of this striking space is concrete, which is hidden by river rock. This garden was featured in the May/June 2012 issue of Fine Gardening. See more photos of this space at our website: mosaic-gardens.com.

Japanese-Inspired It’s hard to believe that this shaded side yard by Mosaic Gardens in Eugene, Oregon, was once just a concrete floor and uninviting cinder blocks. The concrete floor remains — it couldn’t be removed due to drainage concerns — but is now hidden under quick-draining local river rock gravel and a steppingstone pathway. Carefully placed bamboo screens invite one to slow down and admire juniper bonsai and other potted conifers, a recirculating water feature and a lush border of bamboo. Plants include: Clumping bamboo Japanese maple (Acer palmatum, zones 5 to 8) Juniper bonsai (Juniperus sp.) Potted pine (Pinus sp.)
