Create the traditional ‘ripples in the water’ and other raked patterns in your Zen garden using our simple Japanese Zen garden rake.
We have been building Japanese gardens in the UK for nearly 20 years, and in our opinion, you can only successfully rake the 6mm silver grey aggregate.
The tines on the rake are deep and set well apart to be able to achieve the ‘peaks and troughs’ characterised by the typical patterns in Zen gardens. For this reason, we suggest that the gravel should be around 100 mm thick, so you do use considerably more gravel than in areas where it is not raked.
The Hand-held rake is for small areas in the garden.
Tie on rakes are more suitable for larger areas. They simply tie on to a standard garden rake. Please note the garden rake is not included.
These rakes are all handmade which means that they may vary slightly in size and colour.
