For quite some time, I have been wanting to do something in the back corner of my yard. It is about the only space I have left that doesn’t have much in the way of a garden, so this would give me an excuse to buy some plants (and make the space look better than it does right now).
I would really like to create a relaxing, zen garden space where I could go to read a book or just watch the birds and butterflies. And to me, nothing feels more zen than a Japanese garden…
Since I don’t know that much about what goes into making a Japanese garden (and I always like to look for inspiration before I start a new project), I went hunting for some ideas that will help me create a little bit of zen in my yard.
