“Bob Swain [...] wanted to transplant the rugged beauty of Washington’s forested peaks and sparkling mountain meadows to his Seattle garden. He also wished to draw on the imagery of a Zen temple—and on Chinese artifacts and stones—to add a “soul-healing calm and suspension of time.” He calls the result his personal sanctuary. Another remarkable thing about the garden: All this outdoor living space was created in a narrow, urban space that’s just     1/10 acre.”
