The great thing about a Zen garden is that you can go as small or as big as you like. A small Japanese inspired Zen garden can be designed for one corner of your living area, leaving the rest as is. Alternatively, multiple water features, statues and timber structures can be built for the full Zen experience.
Place reclaimed materials or second-hand furniture (chairs, tables, a chest of drawers, etc.) in your outdoor living area to add some character and a vintage touch. Tile pebbles and decor like old vases and vintage posters can also work well outdoors too.
