Woman Gardening

If you’re struggling with your well-being at home, then creating a relaxing garden space could be a great benefit to you. It’s a good idea to have a place you can go to that’s free from life’s stresses. And the garden is ideal! Bringing you closer to nature and taking you away from day-to-day distractions. But how do you create a space in your garden that’s relaxing?


Creating a quiet zone in a busy household


If your garden is shared with your family, you could create a quiet zone. This space can be screened off from the rest of the outside space and be just for you to use. Whether you want to try a spot of yoga or meditation, read a book, or simply switch off, it could be the ideal space.

You’ll need to make sure there’s some physical screening so that noise and activity from other areas of the garden won’t distract you. So, a basic fence installation or some natural screening from tall plants or shrubs will be useful.

If you struggle with heat and sun, create a nice, shaded area with a few small trees. If you’re looking for a natural space for relaxing or trying yoga, then a lawned area will be useful. The addition of some seating, for reading, meditating, or enjoying a drink could also be handy. Try to stick to natural materials such as wood for this though!


Turning your whole garden into an oasis


If you have the garden to yourself, then why not turn the whole space into a calm oasis? A place to get back to nature, spend time nurturing plants, and relaxing in the fresh air.

Try to get as much greenery and color from plants into your garden as possible. This will increase your closeness to the natural world. Choose scented plants and those with interesting textures on the leaves, so more of your senses are stimulated.

Bringing more wildlife into the garden will increase your sense of being close to nature. You could leave a wild patch to encourage butterflies, birds, and small animals, or simply attract bees with a good variety of flowers.

Creating a vegetable patch is another good addition to a relaxing garden space. The growing of food can be therapeutic as well as help you to eat more fresh produce.

Alternatively, try adding a water feature, such as a small pond or artificial waterfall, for a peaceful atmosphere.
