5. Turn A Narrow Side Yard Into A Zen Garden
If you have a narrow side yard, that is the perfect place to build your own Zen garden. This is an easy job, although time consuming and you do have to make sure that you pay strict attention to getting everything even and squared. I love the idea of turning an otherwise too small yard into a place where you can relax and watch the world go by. You’ll need to build a foundation, which requires 2X4s and other materials, but you can definitely do this one in a weekend.
6. Build A Low Water Zen Garden
Zen gardens and water go hand in hand, but you don’t have to use a lot of water to get the same result. You can build a low water Zen garden, which definitely saves you time and money and you will have the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day. Plus, this is a great solution for small backyards where you maybe don’t want to have to mow but you want something that is aesthetically pleasing.
