Bring an element of Japan to your garden

Water is vital to all plant and animal life on Earth and as such, it is an indispensable element to a Japanese garden. To bring an element of Japan to your own garden, it is suggested that you add a water focus no matter how small your garden is. Ponds are a central element of many gardens but if digging a pond isn’t an option for your garden then a Corton steel water bowl may be the solution.


In October, the Royal Botanical Gardens Kew hosted its Japan Horticultural Festival 2021. Otis Landscape Associates in collaboration with kodai and associates created a Chalk Garden in the North Octagon of Kew’s Temperate House, representing the Japanese contemporary garden by combining chalk — one of Britain’s natural resources with locally sourced plants including bamboo, mosses, and ferns.

The Pot Company kindly offered one of their 100cm Corten steel water bowls to complete the exhibit and are now offering the chance to win the exact bowl, worth £215.00.
