With considerable periods of time now being spent indoors to combat further spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we are now spending more time in our gardens than we perhaps ever have done before. Significant periods indoors can be a detriment to our health, so by spending more time in our garden, we can alleviate stressful mental health problems, and get some fresh air. This page will tell you six additions you can make to your garden to make your spending time spent in it more relaxing and more tranquil.
1. Water Feature
A water feature can be a fantastic way to create a tranquil reflection zone in your backyard. Water features come in many shapes and sizes, and if your garden is not large, you can still get one that will fit perfectly in your garden. If your garden is large enough, consider installing a water fountain as well.
Setting up chairs in your garden is a great way to further create a more tranquil and relaxing environment. There are many types of chairs to choose from. From the famed Highwood Hamilton Adirondack chair to wrought iron decorative pieces, and swings. Chairs can give you somewhere peaceful to sit in your garden and reflect.
3. Decorative Trees
Decorative trees are another fantastic way to create a harmonious and relaxing environment in your back garden. Decorative trees can be bought already potted from most gardening centers and home-supply stores. The type of tree that you plant in your garden should depend entirely on the type of garden that you have. A great choice for all garden types is decorative outdoor bonsai trees. These trees, Japanese in origin, are fantastic outdoors and compliment all garden styles. They are a great addition to any zen relaxation space.
4. Koi Pond
A Koi pond, providing you have room, is another great way to create a more peaceful and relaxing environment in your garden. Koi ponds are very easy to set up and install, and do not cost a lot of money. The only expensive part of creating a Koi pond is the Koi themselves. You can, however, buy Koi’s as small fish, in which case they will grow larger and you can save yourself a bit of money from the outset. A Koi pond is a great feature attraction to your garden and a great place to unwind by.
5. Wind Chimes
Wind chimes are a very easy garden addition to make and need only be hung up from the branch of a tree, or from the back of your home. Wind chimes are beautiful and tranquil. If you live in a residential area, ask your neighbours for permission – as some people find them annoying.
6. Scented Flowers
Planting strongly scented flowers can help you to relax. You will have to shop around and find out which flowers have the strongest aroma. Flowers can make your garden feel much more tranquil and can create a much wilder aesthetic.
