Thank you so much
how to make a zen garden
Sand
The raked sand bed is a classic element in a Zen garden. You rake curvy shapes in the sand to represent ripples on water. Raking
patterns in the sand can be a stress-relieving and meditative practice. Change the patterns whenever your head feels cloudy or
stress takes over. A gravel-like sand works best; beach sand won’t hold the shape of the patterns. Contain the sand with a low wall or fence.
Rocks
Rocks act as symbols for mountains, islands, animals or shrubs, but are most often used to represent mountains jutting out of the

earth or islands on water. Choose several rocks that interest you. The size of the rocks will depend on the scale of your garden.

Weathered rocks add a nice look. When you place the rocks in your sand bed, arrange them in uneven numbers. (Japanese gardeners

believe nature is asymmetrical.) Dig them into the ground a few inches, so they look like they’re coming up out of the earth. Also,

don’t clutter the space with too many rocks or stones. Keep the area open and calm.

Plants
The right plants can help blend the garden into the surrounding environment—making it appear boundless. Let moss grow on logs and

stones. Use vines along your fence to add mystery and shield the garden from the outside world. Evergreens and shrubs are good

options to plant—just remember that anything you plant will need to be carefully maintained. An untidy Zen garden is so not Zen.

Extras
Additional elements like bridges and pathways can be visually stimulating, and allow you to look at the garden from different

angles. Just don’t clutter your garden with too much stuff.

Reflect and enjoy! If you don’t have room for a full size Zen garden, create a miniature tabletop version instead. You can even use

a thrift store picture frame as a makeshift sand bed.
