Japanese themed gardens create a calming space to unwind after a long day. Using a combination of simple elements and spiritual design creates an impressive tranquil haven, perfect for any size of garden.
If you’re looking to create your own zen garden, follow our tips for inspiration.
Paths and Bridges
Bridges and stoned pathways are often used within Japanese themed gardens. The stone symbolises the element, whereas bridges insinuate peace and serenity. Depending on the space you have to work with, a small bridge can be perfect to easily separate two areas.
Similar to the use of bridges, water features bring a sense of tranquility and peace. However, less is always more! Make your water feature the main focus of your garden to achieve an authentic design.

Each plant’s used for their calming colours, an essential aspect for any zen garden.
