Whether you live in the heart of a busy city, or out in the countryside in the middle of nowhere. Your garden should be a place of calm and tranquility. Somewhere you can go and read and unwind.
Leaving your troubles behind you is so much easier when you’re surrounded by beautiful plants and foliage. Soothed by the calming sounds of nature. The wind in the trees, and the birds chirping away.
Here are a few tips on how you can create this relaxing environment, no matter the size and location of your garden.
Whether you’re looking to create beautiful spaces for sitting or entertaining. Or something more substantial such as a summer house with a shed.
Create a Seating Area
You can easily create a seating area in your garden by building a patio close to your back door to use as an extension of your home. This is especially great if you have French doors that open out onto your garden.
With some simple planning, and finding the perfect landscape gardener, you can create a relaxing seating area that acts as an extra part of your home, especially in the warmer months.
It can also act as the perfect space for socialising when you have friends and family visiting. Plus, if you add container plants around the space, it’ll feel even cozier and inviting.
Plant a Herb Garden
Did you know many herbs are used for aromatherapy? By planting your own herb garden you can essentially create your own little aromatherapy space to relax in, thanks to the wonders of nature. Certain herbs even have calming and stress-relieving effects – perfect!
To create this calming garden space, you’ll need to make sure you have herbs such as – rosemary, thyme, and mint in your herb garden. You can Aldo add the super fragrant plants such as – lavender, jasmine, and roses to make your garden even more relaxing, and smell amazing at the same time.
Ensure You Have Privacy
Many homes these days are so overlooked by neighbours and other buildings that it doesn’t seem to private, and how can you fully relax if you know you aren’t alone!
Your garden won’t feel relaxing if you have neighbours peering over the fence every few minutes. This is why it’s so important to create a private space where you can feel secure.
While structures such as large fences and walls ensure you have that necessary privacy, they can also make your garden feel small and enclosed, claustrophobic even.
Instead, try to create your private garden by using garden structures such as – pergolas, gazebos, lattice fencing, or even plant a few taller trees if you can.
Create a Water Feature
Water features are great for shutting out the sounds of the outside world. Instead of listening to the traffic go by, or neighbours using power tools, you can zone in on the sounds of the water instead.
Relax and unwind in your very own private, relaxing corner of the world. Plus, the tranquil sound of the trickling water is great for stress relief. What an ideal place for you to unwind after a long day at work!
Turn your garden into a relaxing, tranquil paradise for the whole family to enjoy – when you’re not trying to relax that is!
