Garden of stones in the city

A small stone garden, which we made in the center of Moscow. Since it was not a soil, but the roof of a private house on the 10th floor, it was necessary to provide for the drainage of water. Therefore, the base was made of perforated iron, under which drainage systems were located.

The layer of pebbles is only 11 cm. Therefore, for greater stability, vertical stones were placed closer to the edges, where there is a side support for the stone.

In the center of the composition is the smallest stone. The idea is taken from the Japanese garden of the Tokai-an temple, where in a small area the stones are lined up in one line, and concentric circles run from the smallest stone in the centre. In our case, it is a symbol of a person who is the creator of the city.
