While there’s plenty to enjoy in a simple but well-maintained lawn, nothing inspires a state of Zen like an Asian oasis right in your backyard.

Pathways

Leading from your doorway to a relaxing patio or meditation garden, cut stones in many shapes and colors can act as a symbolic way of leaving your troubles behind.  Another alternative is finished bamboo-style planks leading to a stylish gazebo to shield you from the sun while still enjoying the outdoors on hot, sunny days.

Sand Gardens and Water Features

Remember all the fun you used to have playing in sandboxes when you were a kid?  Zen sand gardens are the adult version, helping you to artistically express your emotions while acknowledging the impermanence of life — and emphasizing enjoyment of the present moment.  Similarly, water features such as gently trickling fountains or lily ponds add a touch of serenity in a busy life — a way to get away from it all right in your own backyard.

Vegetation

Whether it’s high grasses, blooming flowers or stately, colorful trees you have in mind, vegetation is the perfect touch to your backyard oasis.  Commune with nature by inhaling the scents of the plants and the clean oxygen they supply.

Lighting

Soft lights at night, either wired or solar-powered, allow you to enjoy your backyard oasis even after the sun goes down.  Whether accenting a patio or a gazebo or lining a pathway, outdoor lighting is a wonderful way to extend your enjoyment of your beautiful backyard.
