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.
By building a mandala garden, you create a sacred space for quiet reflection and meditation. As stated above, mandalas are generally circular with patterns inside. Mandala gardens are also created as circular gardens and the inner patterns are created by paths and plant beds.
Gardening can be a challenge in small spaces or in areas with little area for a garden plot or bed. This is when it is time to look outside the box and get creative with what you do have. One design strategy is creating pocket gardens. The premise is that you can tuck a plant, or 2 or 3, almost anywhere. Planting some attractive greenery down stone stairs, nestling a few succulents between pavers, or even selecting some complimentary flora that can be popped in the edges of a patio, are all examples of pocket gardening.
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.
