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.
Repurposing old manmade objects is another part of wabi sabi garden design. For example, you can place iron objects that will rust over time, such as old gardening tools and gates, around your garden.
One way to incorporate wabi sabi garden design is to choose plants and objects that will change over time as the seasons change and the elements go to work on them. Adding plants that provide natural textures in different seasons, like a tree with textured or peeling bark, is a great way to do this. Other ideas include allowing plants to go to seed and display their seed pods during the fall and winter, and allowing dry leaves to fall and remain on the ground under a small tree.
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.
