1. Rocks And Sand
Rocks and sand or gravel are at the heart of most Zen gardens. You can add a bit of Zen to your own backyard by simply creating a spot for your sand and adding in larger rocks wherever you want. You can keep a small hoe or rake to move the sand about from time to time or give it a ripple look so that it resembles ocean waves. After all, ocean waves are the most relaxing things, aren’t they?
2. Add Plants And Paths
Part of creating a Zen look and feel is having paths to walk through and admire the many plants. You can create this easily with some DIY stepping stones and then add your various plants – moss and other greenery work really well. This is a really simple step that you can do over time or spend a weekend completely overhauling your backyard, and it is one that will instantly transform your backyard into a Zen paradise.
