Outdoor water features have a very calming effect. Water has been shown to help reduce stress and encourage relaxation, so there’s no reason for you not to have some form of water feature in your garden. They look great, and the sound of water trickling and bubbling is sure to ease your tension. There are various different types and styles of water features, so you can easily get one that fits in with your garden’s general aesthetic.
While your garden may be overflowing with plants, you might not have enough trees. Specifically, big, leafy trees. There are few things more relaxing than spreading your blanket under a big tree and sprawling across it. Having a source of shade in your garden is necessary, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Some bonuses are that big trees look very pleasing to the eye, and that planting trees helps the environment.
If you don’t have space for a big tree, fear not. There are many other ways of providing shade, such as garden umbrellas. In fact, you might decide to get a garden umbrella even if you already have a tree that offers enough shade, simply because of how great it looks. A setup with an umbrella, a chair or bench and maybe even a little table is the perfect spot for you to relax and be at ease.
Wind chimes are a great way of adding some tranquility to your garden. There are a variety of different wind chimes that vary in sound as well as volume, so you can find one (or a few) that will make you feel most peaceful. In fact, wind chimes are often used in sound healing, so hanging them in your garden can only bring positive things.
We all know that flowers are a must have for any garden, but not all flowers are created equal. We’ve already spoken about how to make your garden peaceful by adding visual and auditory elements, but an often-overlooked aspect to relaxation is smell. Think about it – many of the products we use to help us relax, such as oils, lotions, bubble baths and candles, all have one thing in common: they smell good. So why not make your garden even more peaceful by adding some fragrant flowers?
