    Yes I made the bridge earlier this year,
    The garden about 3 years ago.
    And I've had some of the acers over 23 years now.

    Timber house?
    Lol, no that's the summer house, well a 2 room 6 mtr x 4 mtr log cabin.
    The left-hand store room is now my filter room.

    seem to have a Thai buddy in the gravel garden, you could make it more authentic, with a different coloured stone making a suitable patten in the vein of a true pebble garden, but without the need for daily raking back into shape,

    agreed.
    but like most things in life, the garden is a compromise...
    between my like of japanese tea garden from the Momoyama period, and my wife's eclectic taste...the buddha is hers...
    small compromise for koi pond
