Zen Gardens

Is your boss getting on your last nerve? Do you feel like all you do is shuttle your kids from one after school activity to another, getting stuck in traffic jams and rushing home to make dinner which you haven’t even shopped for yet? 

If your answer is a resounding yes, you are in definite need of a Zen garden – a place where you can get away from it all and breathe easier, and the beauty of a Zen garden is that it can be whatever you want it to be…

Few things are as calming as a water feature and those can be as elaborate as a pond filled with brilliantly colored koi and surrounded by lush greenery or a stone fountain which serves as the centerpiece of an ornamental garden, to a simple bird bath in a lovely corner of your yard.

A trellis draped in vibrant flowering vines can serve as a lovely entranceway to your property, making it feel as if you are framing a tranquil oasis.

You can add stepping stone pathways which take you on a journey throughout your lovely gardens or to an outdoor bench or intimate seating area.

A wooden bridge – over water or not – is another enchanting addition that will put you on a path toward finding your Chi.

In fact, any little areas – such as those with stones or pebbles in soothing hues, lanterns edging walkways or large, moss covered rocks adorning your gardens – promote serenity. 

Here’s something else that will help you find peace. The folks at Edgewater Yard Shop have tons of landscaping products that can affordably bring your Zen garden to fruition.
