The koi/reflecting pond acts as both the entry "foyer" to the garden and a linkage between the house and garage. The pond compliments and reflects the simple, spare architecture.
The idea of an arbor covering the narrow side yard between the house and the fence is so appealing... Especially if the house next door is two-story. It allows the house so much privacy and creates the opportunity for a "secret garden" viewable from indoors... Water feature, flowers, bird feeders whatever you desire... Would be nice between house and detached garage too. So beautiful
