Zen Garden - 禪園

We had a pond in our backyard. It was already here when we bought our house back in 2004. We thought it was pretty cool, but it was always difficult to clean and maintain. Plus, we wanted to make our backyard safer for children... so over the last couple weeks, we drained the pond and filled it in with dirt. Our plan was to build a zen garden, and yesterday we nearly finished the project! Here are a few photos my wife took of our newest backyard garden.

Awesome! What a great idea!

I am so glad we did this! It makes the backyard so peaceful... and Cora sure loves the "Boo Boo" (buddha) statue. She's been talking about him nonstop today. :o)

I think it'd be cool to have a fountain in your backyard. That's the impression I got when I looked at this story though I think filling in the pond is a good idea too. A rock garden is just as nice as water in its own way. --Spirituality of Tea
