What is a Zen Garden?
Zen gardens are tranquil places featuring natural elements and designed for serenity
Buddhist temples in Japan were the first sites of Zen gardens, which are simple landscapes of sand, stone, plants and water that serve as places for reflecting and meditating.
Lines in sand represent rippling water in a Zen garden, where simple objects of nature are used to create a place for contemplation.
Zen gardens are designed to create a stripped-down awareness of thought.
