Zen Garden

As some of you know, I’ve been pestering hubby to do something about our backyard which sadly after over year, not much progress has been made… except for the weeds, which have been thriving very well growing up to as high as my waist!

After some thought and discussion, we decided to reduce the lawn area by bordering it with some gravel… anything to cut down on watering and mowing.

The result is this…image Interestingly, many people have commented that it has a potential zen look, which wasn’t exactly what we had set out to do, but coming to think of it, it’s a good theme to build on. We’ll see how this progresses as we continue adding to the look bit by bit.

In case you’re interested, this is the rough plan drawn up by hubby as we planned the landscaping… impressive right? Drawn to scale some more!
