Every garden has that one spot that just leaves you scratching your head ,you try everything and it all fails ,well now I think I have found my ultimate solution.
In my constant attempts to keep my garden cool and comfortable and protect us from the harsh elements, some areas especially those under the trees have become barren wastelands of dirt, and my solution is a Japanese Zen Garden ,well my take on a Zen Garden anyway.
I intend to start next week, I will need to truck in some white pebbles ,buy some stone lanterns and perhaps even a bamboo water feature ,I am so excited I can't wait to start ,now all I need to do is wake my husband who is having his Suday afternoon siesta and tell him the good news ,keep your fingers crossed for me !
I would also appreciate any suggestions for suitable plants with the Zen influence that can cope with dry shady areas.
|See how dry it is ,at the bottom right hand corner|
|a few pebbles ,a rake and viola! I hope to end up with something a little like this!|
|I think the trunks of this tree will suit perfectly and maybe some uplighting for the night, already my ambitions are running away!|
|Who knows I may end up with something as colourful as this!|
