It is not a “living” garden, but a rock garden is a fun-to-create indoor type of garden. All you need are rocks and pebbles found from the street, park or beach.

In Japan, rock gardens are a big deal to aid in meditation and mindfulness.

Home in NYC, my son and I made these three small rock gardens using Staten Island beach rocks and pebbles. Adding colorful shells , seedpods, or sea-glass is OK too!
