My Personal Stonehenge

Since I'll be starting construction on a house next year, I've been toying with ideas for a garden. Not exactly a Stonehenge, but a meditation/memory garden of some sort. Thus far my only perimeters are it must be circular, low maintenance, and contain a french pleurant (eternal weeper). I can't decide what I want in the middle. It's between a fire pit, fountain or meditation platform of some sort. Good thing I have time to make up my mind. I do want some flowering plants with an evergreen hedge behind them. I would like to capture an Asian, Zen, ancient, natural feel. Something simple. The idea is to relax and meditate there, so nothing distracting or exciting, just calm and peaceful.

What a fantastic plan !
All my gardens tend to be work/activity gardens.
I could use a zen garden like this one.
Do keep us posted on the progress.
