Give Us the Opportunity to Help You

Our job at Ishidoro Zen Gardens is to provide authentic and affordable Japanese style garden design and maintenance services to Calgary residents, while attracting new customers, increasing brand awareness, and generating positive referrals. Whether you are a working professional, a retiree, or a stay-at-home parent, you can always find time to indulge in your passion for Japanese style landscaping.

In prior years, both the news and the media have consistently reported that a typical household with a lawn consumes in excess of ten thousand gallons of water per year (a phenomenon known as "the hidden water waste in lawn maintenance"). More interestingly is the fact that in dry climates like Calgary, especially during the hot summer months, many homeowners water their lawns more than necessary in an effort to maintaining their "green" appearance.

Given that a dry garden is a landscape that is specifically created with drought tolerant plants that can survive with little to no irrigation, they are the perfect solution to "the water footprint of lawns in North America". Therefore, it is only rational to note that the adoption of dry gardens is nothing but one smart step towards a more sustainable future.
