    It depends on the design of your zen garden. For a simple garden, 6-8 inches of gravel should be sufficient. If you are creating a more intricate design, you may need to go as deep as 12 inches or more.

    The general recommendation is 2 inches deep. However, you can certainly go deeper if you want a more intricate and detailed garden. Just be careful not to go too deep or the soil could become waterlogged and cause the plants to die.

    There is no one answer to this question since the depth of gravel in a Zen garden can vary depending on the design and intention of the garden. However, in general, it is recommended that the gravel be at least 2-3 inches deep so that it can properly function as a drainage layer.

    It depends on the size of the gravel. Generally, smaller gravel should be deeper so that it doesn't get kicked around as much. A good rule of thumb is to have the gravel at least 2-3 inches deep.

    There is no definitive answer to this question since every zen garden is unique and people's preferences for depth will vary. However, a good starting point would be to make the gravel about one or two inches deep. This will give you a nice layer of texture that can be easily raked and shaped to your liking, while also allowing for plants and other decorative elements to be added. If you want a deeper garden, go for it! Just make sure that the deeper layer is still compact enough so that the gravel doesn't shift around too much.

    Generally, the gravel should be about 2 inches deep. Deeper than that and the garden may not be able to absorb enough water; shallower and the gravel may not stay in place.
