A garden based around wabi sabi incorporates natural and manmade elements in a way that allows visitors to appreciate their humble and imperfect forms. This typically involves using not only plants but also stones and weathered manmade objects as design elements.
A simple mandala garden design may just consist of paths that run through the circle like spokes on a bicycle wheel. The wedge shaped beds between spoke paths would then be filled with aesthetic and aromatic plants. Ideally, the plants in mandala gardens are small and easily accessible so that each plant can be easily maintained from the paths.
Mandala garden design will depend on the space you have and your budget. Mandala gardens can be huge and filled with elaborate curved or spiral paths. They can include a seating or meditation area. Many times, large mandala gardens will have a water feature in the center to bring the calming sound of rushing water to the sanctuary. Usually, a lawn for meditation or a seating area is located near the water feature.
