Rupert King's stay in Japan during the early nineties may have lasted for just six months, but it had a profound and lasting effect that lasts to this day, reflected in his own walled garden in Chiswick, London. The 10m x 18m space is dominated by a long rectangular pond edged in Siberian irises, hostas, pink bistort, Hakonechloa macra and ferns. It is also partly inspired by Persian Chahar Bagh gardens, both in terms of the rectangular shape and the Islamic notion of a Paradise Garden, a space for sanctuary. Peaceful and calm, this is a garden that brings ancient traditions to bear on modern lifestyles.
