A delicate layout, colorful and very flowing. Good notion about nature environment, but a little bit messy. The hardscape could talk the same language and have the same direction. Although the rocks were of the same species, they have different language. The repetition of the rocks movement in the central plan is monotonous and obvious, even with the good work of the cosmetic sand and with the details. I don't like the skyline, more precisely in the right portion, as it frame the rocks too much and draws attention from the main void. But anyway, it is a superb layout. Great future, keep working like that.

Nice layout, mindful of the natural lines of this layout.

Kam Wong

A good example of this characteristic style. Wonderful use of color and nice selection of stem plants keep the viewer interested.
