The Japanese Gardens, Co. Kildare - 977
A print of an original watercolour painting on Arches paper.
The gardens were devised by Colonel William Hall Walker, a rich Scotsman from a famous brewing family, the gardens were laid out by Japanese master horticulturist Tassa Eida and his son Minoru. The aim was to symbolise the Life of Man through trees, plants, flowers, lawns, rocks and water.
It took 40 labourers four years to lay out the garden at a cost of £38,000. Hundreds of tons of rock were carted from the Silliot hills and large mature Scots Pines were transplanted from Dunmurray, Scotland.
The plan was executed to perfection and Eida’s legacy is now admired by the 120,000 visitors who visit the gardens every year
