Shofuen Garden in Denver
« on: February 08, 2007, 11:32:46 PM »
Is anyone familiar with this garden? 

Aside from the cool name (The Garden of Wind and Pines, or Garden of the Pine Wind), the little information I have been able to find online suggest this garden has elements I am trying to incorporate into my design, i.e., pines, rock, and a teahouse. 

Has anyone been there or have pics they are willing to share?  Feel free to PM me.

Thanks in advance

I modified my search for "Denver Botanic" and "Japanese" and came up with the Denver Botanic Garden web site. They refer to it as Shofu-en Japanese Garden.

"Shofu-en -- the Garden of Wind and Pines -- evokes a sense of tranquility. "

Searching Google for "Shofu-en" produces many results.
