Zenquillity - Zen Garden PlanThis Zen garden plan was designed for peace and tranquility. Oriental gardens are designed with symbolic meaning. The elements that make up this garden were carefully thought out during the design. The front garden is just gravel, with plants and boulders, the gravel helps to calm and soothe the individual as the gravel gets raked it helps release the tension and anxieties that have been place on us by life.
Gravel is raked wavily when times are tough and straight and concise curves when times are smooth. The steppers to the front door are surrounded by gravel with two patches of moss on either side of the path. As one comes out of the house into the back garden there is a deck with cushions and a water basin on each side. Whilst sitting on the main deck you overlook the beautiful pond and water feature offering that relaxing feeling of being surrounded by nature. Whilst enjoying the calmness of the Zen garden you will be able to meditate and reach a state of mental well being.
