Plan Description

Inspired by contemplative Oriental gardens, this naturalistic garden relies on boulders, a layer of gravel and a slope of fieldstone to suggest the bed of a former stream. A simple wooden footbridge leads over the stream to a gazebo at the right edge of the bed. The design includes a lovely palette of shrubs, perennials, small trees and ornamental grasses, all of which require minimal watering and, as an added bonus, are low-maintenance. This leaves you more time to spend in the gazebo meditating and contemplating your surroundings. The bed, which can be located in any open area of your property, is dug to a depth of six feet. A layer of gravel lines the interior of the bed, giving it a natural appearance. The designer creates a berm on the upper side of the bed from the excavated soil. You may prefer to create a flatter design, digging instead to a depth of only one or two feet. Even this slight change in elevation is enough to create the desired effect of allowing the water-thrifty plants to flow over the banks and make a visual reference to a stream that is no longer there. Pretty to look at, and easy to care for, this garden features a rocky former streambed to complement the drought-tolerant plants.
