Relax in the Garden

In these days and times many are working harder and are more stressed out. Many are simply looking for a place of peace and tranquility. A simple place to unwind and relax after a long day. A place that is quiet, calming and a place that is a private. For many a meditation garden is exactly what is called for. Meditation gardens offer you a place to dream, meditate and simply enjoy a few moments of your life.

The type of garden you create will depend on you. Your personal preferences, needs and lifestyle will all help to determine what type of garden you will have. Your garden most likely will be a private place to help you find focus. Many find the act of gardening relaxing. I can recall my parents working in the garden as a labor of love. Your garden area should be a sanctuary where you can get away from it all , reducing both emotional and physical stress.

Where do you put this garden?? There are a few things you should think about when selecting where to place your garden.

  • what time of day you will be in your garden where will the sun be at that time. You may want to figure in shade when putting together your garden. This can be done with a canopy or greenery.
  • what type of seating do you want in your garden?? Consider where and how big your garden will be by deciding upon comfort level as well

A meditation garden should engage your senses. Sound is one thing that helps many. The sound of the bird singing is something that seems to always make me feel at ease. Others something else may make them feel comfortable. Some may want little to no noise to relax. Some soothing sounds may include wind chimes, running water, music or a bird bath. 

I can recall my grandmothers flower gardens and the sweet scents you would find there. Various scents can help to rejuvenate and help you relax. Scents such as lavender and  roses seem to be very soothing. Placing rocks, wood or sand offer your eyes a rest as well. 

The best gardens are those that are simple an logical. Complicating the garden takes away the purpose of enjoyment. Each piece of the garden should be there to help you relax and enjoy life.
