Not all of us have room for a large elaborate mandala garden. Small mandala gardens can still feel like a secluded, sacred space by ringing them with tall grasses, columnar shrubs or evergreens. Again, depending on your preference and budget, mandala garden paths can be made with sand, pebbles, bricks or tiles, and plant beds can be edged with plastic edging, large stones, bricks or concrete edgers. Plant beds can be filled with mulch or rock. You can add extra flair to wheel patterned mandala garden designs by alternating different colors of rock and mulch.
In nature, woodland plants like ferns, trilliums and wild violets happily grow in little patches around trees, not in a perfect ring within a perfect circle. When landscaping around trees, create natural looking beds that also match the style of the rest of the landscape, do not spend a fortune on a fancy foundation landscaping and perfectly placed shade trees only to have them cheapened by quick, easy and boring rings of around the trees. If you love hostas, like many people including myself do, plant groupings of different varieties mixed in with other shade plants for different bloom times and textures. You may be surprised how many shade plants there are if you look beyond the hosta tables at your local garden center.
If you have taken part in the recent adult coloring book fad, you are no doubt familiar with mandala shapes. Besides coloring books, people are now incorporating mandalas in their daily life by creating mandala gardens.
