Zen gardens are known for their calm essence, and in the hectic world we live in, why not transform your backyard into a stress free paradise! Besides being beautiful, a Zen garden is a rather simple landscape design! A great way to start you design would be to get ahold of some nicely grained sand, and lay it throughout your yard. Next, I would look into purchasing some rakes, and see what kind you like best to create your lined patterns in the sand.
It would be a fantastic idea to add some larger rocks throughout the area. Rake in circular patterns around the rocks for a cool design. Put a terrace garden by a Japanese style room divider, and fill it with tranquility moss, some nice pebbles, and a pagoda styled fountain, to create the ultimate space for meditation and relaxation.
Release your stress, and escape from the chaotic world by designing a similar Japanese Zen garden in your backyard. Zen gardens do not take a lot of work, and the process will be fun, and extremely easy!
