So what are the best methods to design a garden to make it as aesthetically relaxing as possible, but also, what can you introduce to make it a comforting haven, somewhere you can go when you are feeling stressed?
Lots of gardens can feel over-decorated, or have too much junk, from kiddie’s toys, all the way through to rusted furniture. The first thing you can do to help create a more relaxing atmosphere is to remove this clutter. Much like they say if you have a de cluttered bedroom, it will relax your mind, and the same applies to your garden.
Create Vibrant Colors
The great thing about a garden is that you can implement little touches here and there to add as much or as little color as you desire. You want your garden space to be relaxing, and sometimes this means keeping it in a good state. Something like the grass, if it looks dull and uninspired, it can impact your mood. But if you go out to your garden early in the morning, and see an inspiring, vibrant color, it will do wonders for your state of mind. Keeping your grass in good condition doesn’t have to be a lot of hard work. Lots of people talk about spending months re-seeding it, but you can accomplish the same results with the right products. Something like Powerfeed Lawn feed helps to thicken the grass, and give it that vibrancy it needs. In addition to this, you should think about colorful flowers and plants, from rainbow roses to lilies, Solomon’s seal or summery cowslip primrose.
Make An Inspiring View
If you are lucky enough to be somewhere that has fantastic views, you need to make the most of these. And when you are thinking about designing the view, be sure to not obstructed with trees or hedges, and provide a beautiful frame for the image, with appropriate furnishings and landscapes. If you are lucky enough to have a view that is thoroughly inspiring, you should do your utmost to enjoy this view. And this may mean integrating suitable furniture, such as rustic swing sofas, wooden benches, or just a plain old sun lounger.
What Do You Really Love?
What really makes you relax and enjoy the comfort of your own back garden? Is it a hot tub? Is it a swimming pool? What makes you switch off from the stresses of the everyday world? And start to integrate these into your back garden space.
To create a garden truly worthy of relaxation means a lot of the things you really love. So think about what inspires you, what colors calm you down, and tidy up your garden to creative space you deem worthy of relaxation.
