This soothing Asian landscape has so many of the classic elements - Buddha statue, Japanese maple - yet doesn't feel cliched since the designer incorporated so many fresh types of foliage and used modern ways with hardscape.

Cute! This rattan wrap gives a chic Asian look to an ordinary handrail. The best part is, you can do this even to an existing rail to amp up the Japanese feeling in the landscape. From Wiz Design via Remodelista.
This rolled bamboo screen makes an easy method of hiding garden eyesores or creating smaller garden rooms within a Japanese garden. From Safari Thatch.
Never seen anything like this lotus-inspired patio. Love the accents of color around the edges. Designed by Lenkin Design.
An Albuquerque, NM take on a zen garden. Love the granite water feature and flowing grasses. Design by Erin's Gardens of New Mexico.
Not all Japanese gardens feature actual water; many represent water with stones, gravel or sand. The sand in this garden has been raked to look like ripples in a pond.
Love the way this custom bamboo fence has offset panels for airflow into the garden and a feeling of depth.
This rustic bamboo spout fits in beautifully with the stonework and colors. Design by Paradise Restored Landscaping.
Buddha's belly bamboo makes a strong statement in a pot or in the ground. Love how it's architectural without being rigid.
Make runoff into a gorgeous feature in the landscape with a rain chain. The gentle trickling sound they make is lovely.
Great small-space fountain solution from the Potted store. The bamboo spout would look great paired with a streamlined black pot.
The softness of the ferns and ornamental grasses balances the crisp lines of the stonework and pagoda. Design and decor by Aguafina.
These modular lattice screens could easily fit into a Japanese garden theme. Choose a type of wood local to your region for an authentic touch (Japanese garden design is noted for using regionally-sourced materials). Modular screens from LatticeStix.
Pebble mosaic is an art I'd love to see more of. This exquisitely detailed lotus-shaped patio brings to mind tropical Asian destinations. Designed and installed by Jeffrey Bale Garden Design.
When the elements of a landscape are simple like this, it takes so much care to get it just right. I love the considered placement of the rocks in this garden. Design by Oasis Gardens of Austin, TX.
