Hello from SC!
« on: August 08, 2013, 08:43:10 PM »
Just want to say hello, and I hope to get a little advice and tips on getting a small Japanese garden going in my back yard.  My wife and I planted a nice Japanese Bloodgood Maple last year, and it has done quite well.  It's now about 6 ft. tall and nice and full.  We want to put a circular path around it with pea gravel, and put about a dozen flagstones on the path.  A small stone bench on one side, and a concrete lantern on the opposite side, with some sort of small hedges on either side of the bench and lantern.  I bought a pretty Hinoki Cypress this past weekend and would like to include it somewhere in the garden.  I want to start small and not get in over my head.

Welcome to the forum, John.  I have relocated your question about pathways to the stones and gravel section of the forum where it will be more easily found in the future.  Thanks!
