  1. http://www.doityourself.com/stry/zengardenelements This is a miniature zen garden, but will give you some ideas: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/ic_planters_pots_boxes/article/0,2029,DIY_13967_2273547,00.html http://www.homestyleexpert.co.uk/CreatingAZenGarden.html This one is more of a rock garden, but is Zen in its nature: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/gr_lawns_landscaping/article/0,2029,DIY_13852_4500648,00.html My suggestion is to pick up a book on Oriental gardens from a local garden center. It will help you out in creating your design. Rock, sand or other materials can be purchased from garden centers, lumber yards, brick companies, discount stores and hardware stores. The rake you need is a normal garden rake, but there are special ones available as well, those are to be found in garden centers, lumber yards, hardware stores or even in discount stores.
