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.
Creating pocket gardens is an opportunity to express your individuality and refresh a space. You can even pocket garden a small herb garden outside the kitchen or a bed of colorful varietal lettuces. The mini garden spaces should suit your vision and purpose while providing plants with enough soil and complimentary requirements.
