This spiritual garden fit within Vedic principles of architecture that originate in a large body of religious texts from ancient India

Designed by Luijten Landscaping

From the landscape designers:

The homeowners had an overall vision for their estate, and wanted to create a new outdoor living area to complement the rest of the larger property.

The design and materials chosen needed to complement the surrounding landscape and fit within Vedic principles that originate in a large body of religious texts from ancient India, and the ancient mathematical formulas of Vastu Vidya.

Square geometry was applied, and each zone was carefully designed to conform with the mathematical formulas.


A beautiful marble Vedic statue was installed as a feature inside the gate, while the landscape design also incorporates a large section of a Balinese carved wall and two carved wall hangings from Bali. 

Planting consists of a tropical theme using bamboo and bamboo palms to line the boundary wall – creating a lush environment. 

Bromeliads and groundcovers with textural foliage are used along with impressive mature cycads to create the colourful palette that is a fitting complement to the Balinese-style home.

The final landscape design also creates a harmonious outdoor living area.

This includes an outdoor kitchen and fire, a spa, pétanque area, toilet and shower, and the pool area generally – all used extensively by the homeowners' adult children and all their friends, as well grandchildren.
