Moon Gate Garden Pasadena, California 1991:

This Estate is nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountain Range. In 1991 Glen Hampton garden designs was contacted by the Pasadena Showcase House of Design and asked to redesign the enclosed garden located off the his/hers master baths.


Landscape Designer Glen Hampton felt the space needed to be a private tranquil zen setting for reflection and relaxation after a hot shower or warm soak in the tub at the end of a stressful day.


Since the residences clean lines and contemporary architecture lended itself to the Japanese style of landscaping... An existing wood fence/gate located on one end of the small garden was removed and replaced with a moon gate entrance. Shoji screens made of marine plywood and faux finished to look like rice paper slide out from the moon shaped opening to provide privacy.


The owners of the estate had amassed and extensive contemporary art collection and were thrilled when Glen selected stone sculptor Paul Lindhard of Art City Studios to create and install the planned tsukubai water feature. Paul hand selected a vein of Onyx imported from New Mexico for the vertical element and basin of the tsukubai. The water pours from a bamboo pole into the basin, runs down a natural vein and disappears through the stone pebbles into an underground holding tank.


Landscape Designer Glen Hampton selected a simple plant pallet made up of red-leaf Japanese Maples, Azaleas, and Mondo Grass. A stone path leads through a timber bamboo forest to another sculpture by Paul Lindhard this one made of an Onyx obelisk with a large Mojave Marble winged globe at the top. The globe can be rotated and represents the movement of the human spirit through life. The dramatic garden lighting completes the desired Zen Gardens effect.
