From time to time as an agent I am confronted with the idea of Feng Shui. Sometimes a house does not appeal to some because it apparently has bad Feng Shui. Drives me nuts! Other times it apparently has great Feng Shui . I have even had a buyer employ a Feng Shui expert for a considerable sum to ascertain the Feng Shui, they bought the property and then moved the front door to a different place!
I have just listed a property at 13 Lyons St Rivervale where the owners have landscaped the front Japanese garden designed and installed by multi-award winning landscape architect Eiji Morozumi. Costing around $15000, the owners found that the garden transformed the front of the house.
“Eiji removed our patchy lawn and dilapidated flower beds and installed a masterpiece. He rolled out the whole job in one connected piece, like some magic carpet. At 7.30AM on the promised day, he came with his people and contractors, and they worked without gaps for the next days, until it was all done. A master.” Eiji says “the garden is meant to be viewed from the house. You paid for it. You should get the best view!”
Among his other awards, Eiji won the Landscaper of the Year prize. The judges said: “The job displays superb craftsmanship and is an iconic example of sustainable principles, characterized by Eiji Morozumi’s statement: respect what is there and what nature is offering.”
A further notable project of his was designing and constructing a superb Japanese tea garden for the 2007 King’s Park Festival. It was unique in using only native Western Australian plants.
