Project at a corporate lodge surrounded by Akita cedar woods The project consisted of front and rear gardens with different characters. The front garden is formal to provide a courteous welcome to visitors. It is a modern space with a checkerboard pattern of moss and granite. In contrast, the back garden is full of greenery, with rocks floating like islands in a sea of moss, taking advantage of the backdrop provided by the Akita cedar woods. This space is beautiful yearround, presenting different faces with each season, including a snow scene that are a standard feature of the Akita winter.
