Hello from New Zealand

Hi there. I'm a new member from New Zealand, and about to start re-landscaping a garden.

Before NZ I lived in Japan for 10 years, am married to a Japanese woman, speak passable Japanese, etc. So, I have a strong connection to Japan.

Initially, I'm hoping for some design help from the forum members here. My section (is that a Kiwi expression? Yard? Lot?) is a right angled triangle - half a square, essentially, so it will be a challenge. Also, I'm an engineer by training, so breaking the "everything needs to be straight lines" habit will also be a stretch!

Helpfully, my wife's mother is a gardening fanatic (lives in Nara, as do other family), so I should be able to get help there too (and tools!), although the plants here, they're quite different...
