The very earliest gardens were constructed within religious compounds and on the grounds of royal palaces. Although much of this was borne from a simple desire for beautiful surroundings, tradition and symbolism are also factors.
Many Asian Buddhist, Hindu and Chinese gardens, given the climate, incorporate pools, fountains and water-fall features for decoration and for a cooling effect.
Modern Thai palace landscape gardens include influences from all over the world, such as wild plants and trees from Europe and America and stone statuettes from China. These can easily be incorporated into your final garden design.
Many Royal Thai palaces also incorporate fruit trees such as mango, jackfruit and tamarind. This reflects the Thai philosophy that even Royal gardens should be practical as well as beautiful.
