App Description

Sand Garden is a highly realistic Japanese rock garden simulator. Adjust the ambience to your liking and create beautiful stylized landscapes through carefully arranged rocks and raked sand. The simulation is so effective you can almost feel the sand beneath your fingers.

Historically, sand gardens were intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature, not its actual appearance, and to serve as an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life. Rock gardens existed in Japan at least since the Heian Period (784-1185).

Features of Sand Garden include:
• Ultra realism
• 3D modeling of the sand
• Beautiful lighting scenes (including a soothing flickering candlelight)
• A variety of random rocks
• Many sand types to choose from
• Six unique raking tools
• Save your gardens

Create harmony today, and carry it around wherever you go with Sand Garden - Your very own realistic Japanese Zen Garden.

(Note from developer: There is a bug that causes a line to be drawn on the screen on the iPhone 6+. Fix is on the way!)
