Most recently featured in the September 2017 "Gardens of the Year" issue of San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles, Japanese landscape designer Kohei Owatari's contemporary Zen aesthetic continues to wow past and future clients. Kohei's designs can be seen not only at private residences, but at hotels, parks, and commercial spaces, and create a peaceful retreat from our hectic lives. His reverence for nature comes out in his extensive use of water and stone, resulting in an interplay of clean geometric lines and meandering paths that often lead to a koi pond or meditation bench. In addition to his lush gardens, Kohei Owatari designs and carves his own sculptural accents, mosaics, and water basins that can work as standalone pieces or as part of his overall garden. You can find more of Kohei's award-winning work in publications like Architectural Digest, Better Home and Gardens, HGTV, San Diego Union Tribune, KUSI TV, and San Diego Magazine.
Koi ponds, waterfalls, stone sculptures, fountains, Zen gardens… we’ve done it all. By using natural elements like water and stone, we can give you a relaxing environment that takes you away from your modern life.
