Pocket gardens can be as simple as several matching planters of ornamental grasses along the driveway to succulents tucked into the rock wall that abuts a path. It is all about creating interest where there was just manmade space.
Wabi sabi in gardens can be a way of imitating natural environments in a cared-for garden. To explore natural changes in your wabi sabi garden, plant perennials and self-seeding plants that will establish their own corners of the garden over the course of years. Place stones in locations that will not receive foot traffic so that moss and lichens will grow over them.
Herbs of any kind make excellent additions to mandala gardens. They have also been created using vegetables or just aesthetically pleasing plants. What you put in your mandala garden should be based on your own preferences ,what plants make you feel happy and peaceful? These are the plants you will want to add to a do it yourself mandala garden.
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.
