Property Description

"Thyme on 43rd" Japanese gardens, designed and constructed by Hayato Ogawa of Ogawa Landscape Design has all the elements you would expect to find in a Japanese stroll garden. Hayato brought to Canada the techniques and tools used by his ancestors since the 1600’s.

These special techniques are seen in various structures, the entrance gate with its unique stone pillars and cedar shake roof, the Azumaya gazebo with its hand milled, hand carved beams mixed with bamboo and string from Japan. The tile ridge caps on these structures were acquired from temples in Japan. The stone pump house, the natural stone and stepping stone pathways, long curved stone bench, various walls and patios display his talented stonework.

Each plant, tree and stone was carefully hand chosen for its unique character and placement in the garden. Too many species to mention, some native to Japan and some to North America, bring delight to the garden in every season. Japanese red, white, black pine, azaleas, rhodos, acers, ferns, hydrangea, thyme are a few but, best of all, you are sure to discover something you haven’t seen before!

Water features have been strategically placed throughout, which add to the tranquil setting. A small waterfall trickles into a seventy foot long pebble stream that flows into a pond over which a wood bridge was built connecting the pathways. A grand waterfall cascades into a koi pond which can be enjoyed from a large patio or stone bench which is covered with a living roof of sedums which blooms yellow, pink and white in the summer. Elsewhere, antique basins and pots are filled with water via bamboo spouts.

After 6 years of much thought, planning and hard work of a true craftsman the garden is now ready to be enjoyed by all who enter through its gates.
While you wander the gardens you will get a feeling that time stands still and a sense that this is truly a place where body and nature harmonize.
