Smarten up the garden. Tidy up the yard and mow the lawn if you have one. Water potted plants and leave instructions to repeat this if necessary. Make sure keys to any sheds or outbuildings that contain garden furniture or games are available and clearly marked.

What about the plant selection? Loud and lively colors, while lovely and at home in other areas of the garden, rarely earn a place in the Zen garden. In their absence, the eye instead contemplates shape, texture and placement. Foliage color is generally varying shades of green, soft blues or darker reds. Strongly variegated foliage may be too abrupt for gardens in this genre. The thoughtful blending of shapes and textures adds interest while peacefully engaging the mind. If you doubt your ability to do this yourself, hiring a good designer can be a worthwhile investment.In the photo shown here, notice how the varying sizes and similar shapes of the boxwood (Buxus sp., USDA zones 5 to 9; find your zone) pull your eye effortlessly through the space. They form a solid relationship with one another as well as with the path, as they interestingly and unexpectedly cut into it.
