We could all use a little zen in our lives. If you have even a small piece of ground you can create a peaceful oasis in your own yard. Simplicity is key and unlike traditional perennial borders with masses of bold colour, the Zen garden keeps colour and quantity to a minimum, focusing on form and texture.
This tranquil site is a perfect design for that shady spot in your garden. Don’t be afraid to place it in the front yard if that offers the best site. By using a length of bamboo fencing strategically, you will still be able to enjoy some privacy. In addition to the plants, the Japanese use hardscape elements to create a sense of space. Traditionally these elements would all be natural, such as bamboo, granite and other stone and water.
