Jas.I saw a similar garden up the north coast & at the time I couldn't help but walk past it everyday just to take another look .. the white stone etc looks great.....exactly as you said "the simplicity of it is so effective"...

A very formal, sculptured look. The really great thing is it would be pretty low maintenance.
