Zen gardens come in all shapes and sizes but follow very rigid principles.

They can be built in a large or small space and are ideal for meditation. Peaceful sanctuaries in a hurly burly world.

The smallest one that I have seen was actually so tiny that it fitted in an egg shell! Other Zen gardens that you may have seen include the small desktop ones that people like to have to keep them stress free at work for example.

Nice as they may appear it is much better to make a Japanese style garden in a slightly bigger space.

In Zen gardens wooden dowling rakes create swirls and shapes that are used to create the illusion of water in ‘dry’ water lakes and seas usually made of sand or gravel.

Zen gardens typically imitate actual landscapes. You will see from the picture above how the land and ‘sea’ replicate an actual panorama of landscape. Sometimes in Japanese gardening this principle is used and it is called ‘Borrowed scenery’ – the copying of real or for that matter imaginary landscapes.

Got a small area in your yard or a roof terrace? Why not create your own ‘Zen’ space? It’s easier to do than you think!
