The Easy DIY Zen Garden

Need a little peace and quiet? Like to garden? Why not make yourself a little peaceful nook to getaway to in your very own backyard! Creating your own backyard zen garden for meditating or reading is easy as 1-2-3 when you start with a Hampton Bay Natural Reed Fence. In this photo we created a little reading nook in 15 minutes with an outdoor patio bench, patio stones or rocks, a fence support system, cable ties, and a natural reed fence. It really was a no brainer, and you can do it yourself too!

Natural reed fencing is constructed with tightly woven vinyl-coated, rust-resistant wire every 4 inches. It helps provide privacy and protection from the wind and creates a beautiful backdrop for a zen garden.

In this garden our natural reed fence was secured to a 7 foot high roll of polypropelene deer barrier with black cable ties. The deer barrier was secured to 7 ft. high steel fence posts.

Because light filters through one layer of this fence, we repeated the fencing with two layers for more privacy.  Add stepping stones, a potted plant, bench cushions, and your zen garden is complete!
