a backyard pond in San Diego, California « »

A Movie-Inspired Garden

Inspired by the movie The Last Samurai, Queenie Iglesia decided to create a miniature version of the film's Japanese tranquility garden in the weed-and-dirt-covered front yard of her San Diego, California, home. She used river stones from her backyard and purchased materials from a local home store to help create her oasis. Once the pond and waterfall were installed, she added handmade stepping stones, as well as junipers and low-maintenance plants that could survive in the dry Southern California climate.
