The best landscaping is achieved by
categorising the area into components dependent on projected use. These components
may overlap, and be selected to use the minimum of materials imported to the
landscape. To maximise value time dependent factors like the immediate planting of trees
and future constructions need consideration. A flexible but methodical approach will
enable the development a unique and beautiful human environment.
We envisage ceremonies to the Jaguar Spirit involving water on
the large Mayan mound projecting into the cenote.
B'alam Ja Way has a cenote surrounded by Maya
constructions including a large mound of pottery shards with material dredged by the Maya
from the cenote, and Maya walls, houses, caves, and possibly bathing
There are six primary
landscaping components on B'alam Ja Way; 1) constructions, 2) horticultural
areas, 3) Forest, 3) Palm forest, 4) Mayan caves, 5) Mayan mound, and 5) the cenote.
