Create A Zen Garden And Beat Stress

Posted By: Franz Cravey on August 25, 2011 at 8:36 am

Pressure sucks. Sad to say life is only getting much further stressful. Zen gardens can aid. People deal with stress in many different ways. This article will tell you about zen gardens, a way that works, regardless of what your scenario. What also helps is that it looks extremely beautiful.

The idea is an organized space for kicking back. It is a common misunderstanding that monks mediate in these gardens. They essentially meditate in front of a wall. Zen gardens are made up of gravel or sand that seems like water, rocks and plants, It doesn’t matter that it is not actually Buddhist an clean space means rest. It is an oasis of calm in an otherwise mad world. I will now tell you how to build one.

1) Find a space. IT also doesn’t really have to be a big area, more often than not small zen gardens work well. Better in fact. It shouldn’t be too shaded either.

2) Light colored wood is successful when building the sand or gravel baths. important. You can also use metal or rock but I feel light colored wood really has the jump

3) Thevery last thing you really want is weeds and things growing up through the sand or gravel. To keep away from weeds and such a fine plastic ground sheet must be laid before putting down any gravel or sand.

4) Equally fill up the baths with sand or gravel. The color is up to you but light color is the path to take.

5) Find some rocks for visual stimulation. It doesn’t matter what they look like just providing you like them. You could also place in some statues. Don’t put in too much though.

6) Rake the sand or gravel. May seem easy but that is the whole purpose. You make the sand appear like the ripples of water.

7) Get a straightforward water feature so that you can hear water as you chill out. Nothing elaborate, just a compact one will do. Less is more.
8) Buy some furniture. Not too much this either. Just a simple outdoor furniture set will do it. Maybe a bench relying on how much space you have to enjoy. This is all about minimalism

9) Plant some flowers. Fragrant flowers like lavender are preferable.

10) Appreciate

Once it is available zen gardens are incredibly low servicing. That is the whole idea of them really. Less time weeding more hours lounging. It sounds easy but this could take time. It will actually be worthwhile in the long run.
