Six Friends Garden


Cornell Plantations


​​   The Six Friends Garden is a contemporary East Asian garden designed for the Cornell Plantations. The design is based on the traditional designs and cultures of China, Japan, and Korea. Within the garden are six interconnected areas each of which features an identifying element: Pine, Willow, Stones, Bamboo, Lotus, and Japanese maples. In East Asian literature and gardening culture, each of those elements — the Six Friends referred to in the name of the garden — represents an aspect of the human experience and a virtue to be aspired to.
