Miniature Backyard Garden with Koi Pond

*photos of the actual garden that I worked off of

I was approached by a granddaughter of an elderly woman who was moving into a retirement home. She asked if I could make a miniature garden of her grandmother's yard back home. Her grandmother loved her home, garden and small koi pond and missed it dearly since she had moved away. As I spoke to the woman, I noticed how her face lit up just thinking of a miniature version of her beloved garden. I told her that she would need to keep the "bushes" and the "trees" trimmed and the "grass" watered. The photos that I had to work off of were not the most detailed but I think that I captured her little backyard enough for her to be able to have something that could bring her some happiness. Find more photos on our Facebook page here. Please feel free to leave comments :-)

I focused on the pond area since that is what she missed the most. All of the plants are alive except the flowers in the flower pots.
The plants on each side of the bench will bloom with tiny white flowers in the spring.
