One great way to add serenity to your space is by creating an outdoor Zen garden. There are several elements which you can include in your Zen Garden to make a more soothing and relaxing atmosphere. The concept of a Zen garden is to tell a story through minimal use of objects. To accomplish this, you must be very strategic of what you add to your environment. Here are our top picks to add to your garden:
Find a landscape which you would like to represent. These Japanese gardens love to orchestrate formations in pairings of three. You can add sand, river stones, volcanic rock, or simply just boulders to your garden. Let each rock be different sizes and structures to give them each their own individuality.
One of the most fundamental features to have in your Zen garden is running water. You can do this a number of ways by creating a waterfall or adding fountains. You can adapt this through bamboo or water coming through some boulders. Look up different ways you can add fountains to your own garden to be creative and tailor it to your wants.
With very flew plants being used in these gardens, what plants you pick is key to setting the mood. Bamboo and ginger are perfect for creating this beautiful atmosphere. However, adding plants with burgundy, moss, or even a golden color can give these Zen gardens a very distinguished look.
