Cal Poly Pamona Japanese Garden
« on: January 03, 2008, 10:04:58 AM »
Does anyone know of a site where there are photos of this garden in detail.   I only found a couple of photos and thought I wanted to see more detail of this garden.  It opened in 2003 in LA I think.  Since this garden isn't very old I think it would help to see how it has matured since 2003.  The site below was the most detailed I found.

Thanks Edzard,  you entered your google slightly different that I did and a couple of sites came up I didn't get.  One was on the second page with the contractor ValleyCrest who built the gardens and that had some photos from angles I had not seen.  And a video of the garden.

Cheers June

I have been to this garden and I absolutely love it.  Let me look through my camera to see if I have any pics from my last visit.

I did have some pics in my camera.  I have to apologize, I didn't take photos of the overall garden.  When I went back with my camera it was to take details like pond edging, transitions, fences, how they hid sprinklers etc.  I hope that these are some use.

Try this link to see the pics.

If you want more info you can e-mail me.. I live within 20 minute drive of Cal Poly and have been to this garden twice and want to go more.

Another nice one is City of Hope.

Thanks Tara,  those pictures show a lot of close up detail.  Perfect for inspiration.
