If anybody needs to relax it’s me, I don’t sleep much at all, I go to bed at about 12 midnight and my alarm goes off at 4:30am, so yeah that’s not much sleep at all. It seems I’m always stressed out about something anymore, bills, health and life in general really and I need a way to relax. Today for review I got something that might be able to help me with that, a Zen garden from a company called Zen factory and I like it a lot as it’s got everything you need to get started being a little more Zen with your life…

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:
The packaging is a white box with a label on it and inside you’ll find some block of styrofoam and everything wrapped up neatly for protection.
The tray is solid black wood, looks nice overall and it has rubber feet on the bottom. The tray is about 8.5 x 6.5 x .5 inches in dimension. So it’s small you could put it on your coffee table or even on your desk if you wanted.
Inside you’ll find a bag of sand that’s double bagged for protection, a wooden rake, incense burner cauldron and an assortment of river rocks. The amount or rocks you’ll get depends, it varies from what I’ve seen. The little pot of cauldron as I call it is nicely decorated and there’s a hole in the middle for a stick of incense.
To get started you’ll need to empty the sand into the tray and then spread it out, it seems to me there was just the right amount packed in the box for the size of the tray.
I assembled or placed everything in the garden and I did some raking to create designs.
I do have some Japanese style incense and it fit just fine in the pot, but you should be able to use most any sticks of incense with it.
I’ve always wanted one of these and I like it a lot myself, it’s got everything you need to get started with a basic little Zen garden but of course you can add more if you want to give it that personal feel.
I can’t find anything wrong with this product,it’s fine the way it is.
If you’re looking for a little Zen garden that I think you should seriously take a look at this one before you make any decisions.
