Paradise Courtyard

The Paradise Courtyard was designed as a tribute garden to the concept of a traditional Moghul garden. There are two identical fountain gardens. Each has a rectangular central pool with simple upright jet fountains. Around the pool is a geometric pattern of waterways forming a larger rectangle. At the four corners and the midpoints of each long side are circular pools with a tree growing from the center of each. It appears as though the trees, which are Crab Apples (Malus 'Evereste'), are growing in pots but apparently the containers are bottomless and the roots are in the ground below the pools. The design is framed by the Whitebarked Himalayan Birch (Betula utilis var. jaquemontii).
