No Watering Required

Less is more. Modeled after traditional Japanese Zen gardens, this meditative plot offers a grounded respite from the day-to-day with a tactile playground meant to enhance concentration. Rake the gravel or contemplate the stillness of water stones for a soothing exercise in living in the moment. Created by Klaus Bosch, otherwise known as "The Sandman," the garden comes with a booklet for enjoying and practicing four different Zen garden activities. Handmade in Austria.

Klaus Bosch

Klaus Bosch calls himself the Sandman, and rightfully so. Born in Lustenau, Austria, Bosch created "Rainbow Vision" sand pictures and "Za-Zen" zen gardens. He continually produces beautiful works of art based on the ever changing quality of sand.

Many would call him an artist, but the Sandman considers himself a talented craftsmen. As a child, Bosch was fascinated by science, the cosmos and stars, and the idea of being part of the bigger picture of the universe. collection

    This is a toy, a meditation object, a source of humor, a way to find serenity. These days we need all of the above. I'd sure buy it!!!

    This is a great product to relax with for a few minutes. Find your stress drifting away either by 'working' in your garden, or just looking at it!
