As far back as the 7th century, the Japanese held theories on the creation of recreational gardens, reaching beyond the constraints and restrictions of practicality. During the Heian period (about 800 – 1200 AD), the idea arose to lose oneself in poetic, periodic motion. The garden emerged from poetry to bring inspiration allowing the person to cultivate their relationships with the gods of the air and sea. Further enhanced by the Zen Buddhist declaration in the 16th century to make every action a ritual for meditation, the Zen garden became a simple and undemanding means of meditation.
The ability to express your creativity in a Zen garden is vast and infinite. Enjoy our gardens without borders in your imagination.
