  • This residential scale design service includes recommendations or proposals for you to submit showing the design concept and plan. However, we can also provide a construction service and purchase (Export) services for all kinds of landscaping materials. Additionally, we will assist in finding a local landscape architecture company.  

 Let’s start to convert you dreams into reality by following these 5 steps.

Step.1  Please contact us to provide written estimates.


  1. We would like you to ask your family members for suggestions to the design, if available.
  2. How many parking spaces do you need?
  3. Do you have a special request for the plants and flowers?
  4. What type of Japanese garden do you prefer to have? Kaiyushiki (traditional strolling garden with pond and stream), moss garden, dry landscape garden (Karesansui Zen garden), Tsubo-niwa (traditional Japanese courtyard), Chaniwa (tea garden)?
  5. How do you plan to maintain your garden?
  6. If you have an images, pictures, drawings, and/or documents of your proposed garden, please send it to us.

Step.2  Site survey

  1. We need to survey the existing site. Please prepare a site plan including: direction, elevation, drainage system, underground electrical wires, and gas system, if available.
  2. Please prepare some pictures which show the view of the site and the surrounding landscape from your house. It will be a great help if you also let us know where you took these pictures at the same time you provide us with your plan.  
  3. Please prepare an architectural site plan and floor plan with pictures (i.e. where are the main gate, windows, living room…)

Step.3  Do you have a plan including time & budget?

  1. If you have a budget plan, please let us know.
  2. Please inform us of any special requests or design installations that you may have.
  3. For many reasons it may be hard to complete a whole project at one time. In those situations, we recommend deciding on a final concept plan at the beginning.  Then start to construct your garden following an agreed upon construction schedule.

Step.4  Let’s start to make a concept plan for your garden.

  1. We will draw up the first concept, at this time you are free to indicate any preferred alterations. (There will be additional charges for changes that are requested after this design phase.) We will support you by e-mail and FAX.
