Last to construct was the zen xeriscape (dry land) garden using left over materials from other projects. The beds were aligned with the four directions and designed as a star compass to give people their bearing. The design also fit with the lunar design of the pond and solar design of the natural 'medicina' garden completing the celestial triad of sun-moon-star. Here we planted cactus, aloes and other desert plants. An artist included an art installation in the sand garden and the cactus were organized in a crop circle pattern. This garden was located furthest from the main entries and from the hose and required the least amount of care and attention.
Here is one of zariat's pictures of the finished xeriscape based on a star design.
