Zen Garden Design
Why choose a zen garden design
In the world of complexity, information overload and radical uncertainty, many people choose the simplicity of zen gardens as a refuge from the business of the outside world – to unwind after a hard day’s work.
What is a zen garden?
Zen gardens were originally developed by Japanese Zen Buddhist monks as places for meditation, contemplation, enlightenment and inner peace.
A traditional zen garden (karesansui), is usually composed of minimalistic elements such as a dry landscape with natural elements of sand, gravel, rocks, and wood, with a few plants and usually no water element or features.
Man-made features such as stone lanterns, bridges, statuary with an enclosing wall or fence are designed to separate the space from the outside world. The main focus and purpose of zen garden design is the inner world of peace and tranquillity. One of the best benefits of zen garden design is it’s a year-round appeal where there is little seasonal change (hardscaping).
Modern zen garden design
In modern garden design, different aspects or features such as stones, bonsai trees, koi carps ponds, sand features, stone sculptures and so on of zen garden design can be incorporated into any home garden or landscape.
