TK Wonders | Junya Ishigami amazing 'Water Garden' composed of hundreds of trees, countless biotopes, water and moss. 'The site was originally heavily wooded before it was cleared for rice fields. Later, it became meadowlands. We researched the species and configuration of the original trees on the property and carefully rearranged them in different places. Weʼll create numerous ponds between the trees to allow the reflection of the sunlight that filters through and plant moss to fill the spaces between the trees and ponds. The landscape created by this method consists of the same environmental components originally on the site but will become ‘new nature’ by combining the various elements in a new configuration.' Junya Ishigami 'Water Garden' at Art Biotop Nasu is located at the foot of the Nasu mountains.
All of our irrigation systems use the next generation of irrigation, called the Aquifer Pipe. You place the Aquifer Pipe 12 inches to 18 inches below the surface to feed plants from the bottom up at the roots, this avoids losing water 50% of the water to evaporation. By cutting evaporation you save 50% of the water normally needed.
About In this photo we assemble the Aquifer Pipe with a 3 inch Pipe elbow, that will extend to the surface so we can add water manually. Notice the styrofoam insert is used to push the Aquifer Pipe up against the elbows walls to assure a nice tight fit before glueing.
The Aquifer Pipe fits all standard 3” pipe fittings. The fittings can be made from PVC or ABS.
