“ART IS NOT WHAT YOU SEE BUT WHAT YOU MAKE OTHERS SEE AND EXPERIENCE WITH THE SOUL.”

secret1 The inspiration for this modern meditation garden was drawn from the elements of nature: earth, wind, water, fire, wood and rock.

Each element is represented in the following ways:

· The plants represent the life-giving force of the earth.

· The sails represent the flow of wind or air, which whispers the secrets of the earth to us.

· The calming flow of water stills the mind. Water is the flow, which connects all life.

· The ‘flames’ represent the energy of fire. The warmth is the energy of the sun.

· The sculpture symbolizes rock or earth.

The planting strengthens and enhances the design and the deck provides a place of relaxation.

Plants used in the design:

Dietes grandiflora

Festuca gauterii

Nandina domestica

Philodendron xanadu

Scabiosa ‘Butterfly Blue’

Carex Frosted Curls
