Zen Gardens For The Anal Retentive

These gardens are not for me, and quite frankly, if you have kids or pets they probably are not for you either.   That’s not to say, I don’t completely love them (I do)….it’s just that I can’t imagine having the patience to create the beautiful patterns and if I did achieve such a feat, I would want to kill the creature who messed it up (very un-zen indeed).

But for those of you who can’t keep anything green alive, but you do have a steady hand and the cool composure to garden in this way — I highly reccommend the ‘cactus in hot pink sand’ garden….it is just the thing for you.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    These are beautiful!
    While I have a large garden for the time being, various reasons beyond my control allow for the tragic possibility of losing it at any time. So I ask myself, ‘what will I do’ if such a thing happens. Well such examples as this post , provide a livable answer.
