Add a calm spot on the patio, perfect for relaxing with a book and a cold lemonade. This zen garden planter is easy to make and offers a fresh focal point for your outdoor space.
Choose indoor plants that can create a miniature landscape in the low, wide pot. Taller "tree-like" plants (such as the Maiden's Hair Fern Jason uses) can gracefully grow above the shorter houseplants that offer ground cover and colour. All the plants need to work together to create an arrangement that can sit in shade, or partial shade, on the patio - so make sure to check each plant's likes and dislikes before adding.
The best part is at the end, when you get to add some interesting accents to your garden! Eye catching, natural stones or other elements can create the character of your planter. Include a Buddha statue for an Asian flavour, or collect elements on a nature walk.
Jason puts together this zen garden planter using the following ingredients:
