The most important thing to concern is not the how big the space of the garden is, but how good and serene the design is. The first thing that you should do is placing some sand or gravel on the mini Zen garden. Then you may need to decorate the sand by putting some rocks or stones. They can be in big or small size depending on your preference. I prefer the big ones since they are easy to arrange and do not consume much time in the placement. You may need to put the rocks in curvy lines. The big rocks can be placed in some corners of the mini Zen garden as the perfect decoration. You may also add some items as the ornament. For example, you may set a bird cage designed in Japanese look.  The oriental feeling can be perfectly defined from such items.

If you have much budget, you may also get a pond of sparkling water in the middle of the mini Zen garden. Don’t forget to adorn it with some river rocks. You may add some colorful fish with shallow waterfall. They can be great ideas for the decorating the mini Zen garden. The home owners will feel comfy and peace when they hear the sound of the natural water. Mini Zen garden is not merely a garden used to decorate the house. It’s more than that since you can utilize this garden a place to perform meditation and yoga. If you have problems on the office, you may relax your mind and body by seeing the pure mini Zen garden.

Let’s continue about the design of your mini Zen garden. Now we need to think about the plants. There is no need to for you apply some striking flowers like on the ordinary garden in the house. Since the theme applied is all about the tranquil and peaceful settings, you may need to avoid picking colors which can distract the eyes. The best plant to pick is something green and fresh. It will make your eyes relaxed. You may also plant some biggest trees or moderate size tree as the decoration. A bed of grass is prefect since it has green color suitable for the mini Zen garden design.
