Our tulsi garden will be 100 feet by 50 feet and surrounded with an 8 foot hedge of Tsuga Trees. This hedge will provide privacy to meditators and prevent distractions from the surroundings. Around the garden will be a brick path and paths will merge through the garden in a cruciform pattern. Hedges of yaupon holly will enclose the garden beds containing the Tulsi. Yaupon holly is a very suitable plant for a meditation garden because its stimulant properties promote awareness. The tulsi fields will be studded with English boxwoods. Several benches will provide rest to visitors and a place to meditate. Eventually we plan to construct a gazebo in the center of the garden to provide additional seating and a shady place to enjoy the spiritual serenity of the garden.
