Home to the first Zen garden in the U.K., the St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art is the only public museum devoted to the subject of religion. The museum's Zen garden, which was carefully modeled after those found in many of Japan's Buddhist temples, has a small stone wall surrounding it as well as a number of flat and weathered stones.
The Japanese rock garden (枯山水, karesansui) or "dry landscape" garden, often called a zen garden, creates a miniature stylized landscape through carefully composed arrangements of rocks, water features, moss, pruned trees and bushes, and uses gravel or sand that is raked to represent ripples in water.

Gravel size plays an integral part in a Zen garden. Choose a material that is small enough -- about 1/3 inch in diameter -- for your rake to easily comb through, while leaving a visible trail or lines from the rake's tines. Gravel is a better choice than sand because wind and rain will not disturb the designs.
