Key Features of Zen Gardens

Balance and simplicity are the key features of Zen gardens, so you shouldn’t add many elements together but arrange them separately. Different elements can be part of these garden’s decor including pebbles, rocks, sand, trees, bamboo, flowers etc. Also, water is an element that can be found in such gardens, so you may try to add some still ponds, flowing streams and even some small cascades. The relation of the elements are based on three principles: reduced scale, symbolization and borrowed view.
