Zen-like charm creates an overall feel of simplicity and serenity in this drought tolerand landscape. Bamboo is a tough plant that thrives in most any condition. Rocks add a great protective layer, allowing moisture to penetrate the soil but decreasing the amount of evaporation.
Bamboo is often the tree of choice in a Zen garden. It is simple yet elegant; exotic yet attainable. Complemented by gray gravel and rocks, this garden — made by Ververka Architects — shows how a modern home can benefit from a centuries-old concept.
