Discover The Uniqueness Of Malaysian Garden Concept
idea of Malaysian Garden is to create a world-class
tropical garden concept which is rich in cultures
and diverse traditions for your garden for home. It was previously
known as the widely famed Neo Nusantara. It was
born out of a love for nature and also to create a world-class garden
concept to call our own. Neo Nusantara literally means "New Malay
Archipelago" . Therefore, it represents the new tradition of artistry
in Malaysia which is the evolution of art and craft deriving from
the Malay-Sumatra-Borneo archipelago.
Our multi-racial culture is rich in art and craft.
Our concept of garden represents a melting pot of various traditions
which blends a collective sense of our history and identity. We
should design landscapes that reflect our rich multi-racial culture
instead of adopting the garden designs of other countries. A Malaysian
garden must reflect a tropical theme and ideally demonstrate the
harmonious fusion of various cultures – Malay, Chinese and Indian.
you think a Malaysian garden is based on our local folklore like
Puteri Gunung Ledang or Mahsuri, thus incorporating design features
reflecting the beauty and innocence of the fair maidens. Or it should
reflect our cultural history by fusing artistic elements of each
race like the intricate Malay carvings and Chinese bonsai plants
with Indian tea lights. Whatever the design, it must contain a fair
amount of "Malaysianness". Our culture is chock full of artistic
history, legends, fables, customs, and much more – why do we need
a Victorian garden to beautify a Malaysian hotel? Or a Balinese-style
pond in a Malaysian public park?
Malaysian Garden design is more than just a concept
or a garden. It is NOT about the style of furniture or pergola.
It is NOT just a garden made by wood. It is an outdoor living space.
It is the lifestyle that we promote that makes it Malaysian. It
is a sanctuary and a place where you can rejuvenate your sense of
sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste (The 5 Senses). This separates Malaysian
garden from any other garden concept in the world.
It isn't only about beauty and grandeur. It aims to harness pleasure
from Mother Nature. Think of the peace from the balance of the nature
that you can enjoy. Think of it as a perfect counter-balance to
Garden is more like an outdoor room where the sky is your
ceiling; lattice with creepers or tall trees are your walls; and
sand or grass is your carpet. It promotes outdoor living activities.
Imagine a place where you can entertain guests, sit and chat
with family or friends in a garden party, or just relax on your
own. Picture of a garden water feature for your kids parties.
What about a family candlelit dinner in your outdoor garden? You
can also lie down beside the gurgling fountain and gaze at the evening
It's an exciting new design concept that creates
an outdoor living space within your garden. You
can turn it into an living area, for recreation or dining, and it's
all outdoors. Gardens must breathe life into people. Otherwise,
it is just a pretty but dead space.
Malaysian Garden is created by Malaysians for Malaysians
and people around the world to savor the nature at the comfort of
your home. Furthermore, it enhances your senses, reminds you that
you can enjoy the simplicity of life within your own home. It is
affordable, customized to fit even the smallest of gardens and creates
a distinct fairytale look with local flavor.
Today, the Malaysian is beginning to embrace outdoor
living due to the abundance of nature, especially in our homes.
The combination of the nature with the man-made creativity is synonymous
with the beauty of Malaysian Garden. At the heart of the Malaysia
Garden is the emphasis on living in your garden just like
living in the kampung. As Desmond Ho said "A home is not a home
without a balance between indoor and outdoor living areas."
