A Zen garden is an excellent opportunity to learn to admire the flowers and fruits, to remain still enchanted by the cycle of life that follows the seasons, forgetting for a moment of the habitual hectic life. The Zen garden if chosen with awareness has a totally different meaning from those who choose it only for tendency. A Zen garden is made up of rather basic, and above all unsolicited, elements. Those who fall in love with this particular garden are struck by its beauty despite not having too many garden furnishings. When in a zen garden there is a water area, which can be represented either by a waterfall or a pond but also by a fountain, this must be present in a very specific point of the garden to prevent it from 'bringing tears'. Too many sources of water could portend this, so each element must be chosen with great care. The Zen garden is made up of rather simple and natural elements such as gravel, which is shaped by the use of a rake. Drawing continuous lines decorates not only the gravel itself, but a precise meaning is attributed to this continuous line. Choosing a fountain for a Zen garden requires the choice of a particular and specific model, namely a Zen fountain. Certainly the model is very different from the classic fountains that we are used to seeing in Italian gardens and what is certainly surprising is its simplicity. Even in small Zen gardens the fountain finds a perfect placement, since there are all sizes. Nothing prevents those who have little space available to still be able to organize the space in such a way as to create a Zen garden. For particular advice, you can contact a specialist dealer for Zen garden items.
