For centuries Chinese gardens have been a source of inspiration for other landscaping ideas. Originating thousands of years ago, these gardens were once popular among royal families, and used as a place to escape from the business of the outside world. These days, having a peaceful place to escape is more important than ever. After a long day, everyone could use a few minutes to just sit in a quiet space and relax. So when it comes to beautiful and peaceful scenery, Chinese gardens have always delivered a calming look that most people just can’t seem to get enough of. Now popular all around the world, elements of Chinese gardens can be found in people’s yards, and often add a unique touch to the area around them. Although most people don’t go as far as to replicate an entire Chinese garden, many have found ways to borrow the pieces they love the most to create something that is beautiful and serene. Using inspiration from Chinese gardens for landscaping ideas can help your backyard transform into a beautiful and peaceful sanctuary. Here are 20 landscaping ideas inspired by Chinese gardens.
