Kubota Garden

We made a recent visit to Kubota Garden in south Seattle.  It was a private nursery, garden, business center and home for the Kubota family's landscape business and was developed over generations.  It is now, through the generosity of the family and hard work of many citizens, a public park and a real delight.  Anyone interested in garden and land design should visit.  Or just visit to have a nice walk!

 The walk into the lower garden area slowly opens up.  The mix of color and texture is magnificent.

 Large water features need to have a signature bridge.  This one is a quiet design with wornderful red railings.

 Little footpath bridges interact with the water.

 Contrasting green leaves and the lawn here are wonderful.

This is a little jewel in the city.
