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.
Wabi sabi can be defined as beauty in imperfection and can incorporate asymmetry, incompleteness, impermanence, and simplicity. In addition to gardens, wabi sabi influences many other aspects of Japanese art and culture, such as the tea ceremony and pottery making, and it is also seen as a way of life.
We all want dramatic curb appeal in our landscapes. One way to accomplish this is to use brightly colored, eye catching plants. The problem with adding too many bright plants is that it can quickly turn from eye catching to eyesore, as too many of these colors can clash and become uncomplementary. To avoid this, you can use color blocking in the garden.
Incorrect site and soil for plants. Hostas around the trees and yews on shadier sides of the home does at least prove that the designer has some knowledge of what plants to use in different light settings or has read some plant tags. One of the most common mistakes in landscaping is improper placement of plants. When purchasing landscape plants, read the plant tags and ask garden center workers about the plants needs. Plants that need full sun and well-draining soil can become stunted, not flower and eventually die in shady, moist landscapes. Likewise, plants that need shade and love moisture will constantly need to be watered and burn up if put in a sunny, dry location.
