Your moment of calm… Inspired by our love of Japan
Welcome to Island Falls Home. We’re a family-run business, based in England & we love what we do! We’re delighted you’ve chosen to look at our Zen Garden.
It all began when we visited Japan in 2017, venturing far from the hustle & bustle of the vibrant cities, we found ourselves amazed by the peaceful tranquility of Japanese Zen Gardens. We have developed ‘The Zen Garden’ with 4 simple aims:
To help you achieve your goal of daily calm & relaxationTo capture the essence of Japan’s wonderful gardens, in a giftable, premium, desktop designTo offer you the widest choice of beautiful tools & features so you can individualize & reinvent To provide you with some cultural background
We invite you to enjoy our delightful, luxury, mini Zen Garden kit, inspired by our visits to wonderful Japanese gardens. Using natural products where possible, our Zen Garden has been thoughtfully designed & crafted with all you need to discover the art of zen gardening. We’re confident you’ll love this product.
At home or at work, our deluxe Japanese Zen Garden is your path to mindful meditation
Master Complex Patterns
With 6 tools, 11 features & a large tray with deep soft white sand, you’re free to master complex patterns & designs. You’ll be surprised by what you can create. The black stackable zen rocks are natural and therefore unique. Stack them, or place them freely around your garden.
Less can be more. Depending on your mood each day, you may find that you achieve the desired result using just a few features & a more simplistic pattern. With so many tools & features, enjoy the luxury & freedom of being able to make it truly yours, reinventing it over and over as you wish.
Relax & Unwind
Set the mood; turn on some soothing music, dim the lights or light some candles & allow yourself to relax & unwind in the moment. We wanted to offer a Zen Garden large enough for you to experiment. You’ll be surprised how effective the raked sand appears when mood lit.
More Choice, More Space, More Sand: 11 traditional features for endless arranging possibilities
Our Zen Gardens feature a single, larger space, not multiple smaller zones. This is so you have the unrestricted pleasure of creating amazing patterns across a larger area. We believe this is the most satisfying, and the most reflective of traditional Zen Gardens.
In addition to 16oz of deep Soft White Zen Garden Sand in a large 11 x 8 inch Black Pine Wooden sandbox (& 6 bamboo tools), you’ll discover 11 traditional features, each beautifully crafted with great attention to detail:
Sakura Cherry Blossom with natural bark base (2 Pcs)Moss (2 Pcs)Small natural River Rocks (1 Bag, approx 50 Pcs)Large natural black stackable Zen rocks (3 Pcs)PagodaBridgeLotus Flower
Have a browse through the enclosed color guide to reveal the meaning of the pieces. You may even learn some Japanese along the way. Japanese home decor such as our desk top Zen Garden will offer a peaceful escape.
More Tools: 6 beautifully handcrafted bamboo rakes & tools, enclosed in a ribbon gift box
Most sets offer 1-2 tools, sometimes in plastic, but we think that’s like being an artist without the right paintbrushes. With our full set of six unique handmade bamboo tools, let your creativity run free, effortlessly creating healing meditative patterns in your zen sand garden.
The larger tray has plenty of sand. With deep sides, you don’t have to worry about spilling sand whilst still enjoying sand raking to the full.
Adjustable Five-spike rake (create extra-wide patterns)Smoother tool (smooth the sand before a new design)Triangular-toothed rake (design shallow, wide patterns)Four-spike rake (mark out deep, narrow patterns)Circle-drawing tool (form beautiful concentric rings)Detailer stylus (draw free-form, unique patterns)

Getting the most from your Zen Rock Garden
Whether it’s from work, commuting, or juggling life’s pressures, the chances are we can all relate to stress or anxiety. Most studies agree that well over half of Americans suffer from regular stress, & anxiety affects an alarmingly high number of us. The good news is that for many, Zen Gardens are the perfect way to restore a sense of balance & calm. The arranging of features & raking of the sand encourages the mind and body to relax, by focussing on the here & now.
Simply fill the wooden tray of your zen sand garden with plentiful soft white sand. Enjoy choosing bamboo tools to create an array of designs that symbolize the landscape. Placing features in your raked landscape, lose yourself in a creative moment. Our deluxe Japanese sand garden is your path to mindful meditation. Use as a meditation kit or to simply relax & unwind.
