Hello everyone. I'm Carla and I live in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
Thank you for accepting me in the forum!
I've fallen in love with Japanese gardens since I was on vacation and during a cruse we stopped in Monaco and I visited the Japanese Garden there...
After that I starting looking for the right plants to plant according the zone, soil and temperature and discovered that most of the plants, trees and flowers that people use around here are originally from japan and that the climate and soil pH is just like what they have over there.
So I decided that would have my one Japanese Garden! Initially I started doing it myself but soon realized that I couldn't make the pond alone, and that some professional help would be needed. After finding a gardening company specialized in Japanese gardens, and approving the project, 5 long moths were needed until finally it was finished in February 2012.
Now I dedicate it a lot of my time taking weeds, feeding my 3 koi fish, pruning azaleas, pruning my pines - reading and learning from whatever I can: books and internet - So, for me it is very important to be in a forum that it specialized in this king of gardens. I'm a young baby learning to walk in this magical world of Japanese gardens and Niwakis... and I will need some help for sure!
To start with, let me introduce you to my garden, hope you like it The plan:Only few photos here, but I will post in garden gallery a few more:
