Zen Bath Garden Los Angeles, California 1998:

This contemporary residence was built in the seventies on the north facing slope of the San Fernando Valley. It's secluded location along the Mulholland Corridor commands sweeping views across the valley below. In 1998 Glen Hampton garden designs was contacted by its owner and asked to remodel the master bath garden.


The garden was a nondescript/uninteresting space located on a floating deck. However because of its location outside the bating tubs floor to ceiling window it was an important part of the master bath design. Landscape Designer Glen Hampton felt that the all glass contemporary structure and its interiors were compatible with the Japanese style of landscaping. His desire was to create a private serene zen setting to be viewed rather than lived in.


A tranquil black granite "Mizubachi Fountain" from Stone Forest was set into the deck as a central focal point when viewed from the bathing tubs window. A Bouquet Canyon Stone planter was installed and planted with a giant timber bamboo clump depicting the forest. Granite boulders were hand selected and placed in traditional Japanese stone groupings.


The most interesting challenge faced by the landscape designer was his desire to create a maintenance free traditional sand garden that could be walked on without disturbing the sand pattern. This challenge was met by using Stone Resin a material used by the tile industry to mimic the look of natural stone.
