Small Meditation Space
New to this forum and this way of gardening. We are going to be moving in July and in our new yard, we're going to recreate our pond but I wanted to keep it somewhat contained because I have a one year old who will be walking very soon. I came up with the idea of having an outdoor meditation space with a small pond. I've always wanted a Japanese style garden and so now that I have a "blank slate" to start with I thought I'd do it. My question is, is this a proper thing to do in a Japanese garden? I would like to use a more decorative fence then use climbing vines to somewhat disguise it. Any ideas or thoughts as to this idea? Has any one done it on here and do you have photos?
Our new back yard is almost 1/2 acre and is bordered by other yards and a corn / soybean field at the back. I would like to have just a small, say 15 x 15 space for my meditation area. Like I said, I'm a mom to a one year old, I'm going to need a meditation area!!! :)
