When you are thinking of your garden remodel, you often have to remove, add or change something. Many gardens have lawns, flower beds, and ponds. But there is no surprise in it anymore. If you want to make your garden unique, try to create a desert landscape there. A sand garden will be a real decoration of the area. But first plan things.
A sand garden is called arenarium. This is a composition of sand, plants, and stones. This kind of landscape design is not vey common yet. Arenarium has been used for garden decoration since recently. But if you read the history of this desert landscape design, you will see that it is a combination of Japanese rock gardens and dry gardens.
Rock gardens originated in Japan in the 13th century. The shape and position of stones has a special meaning. Wavy lines marked between the stones: this is the image of water running from mountains. Dry gardens are a part of desert landscaping as well. These are gardens that do not need watering. In contrast to rock gardens, they have plants, but only those, which usually grow in deserts. As we have said above, these plants need no watering. If some of them die, they are replaced with new ones. Thus, natural selection takes place. So, why not to use some of these desert landscaping ideas for your garden?
