6 techniques for creating a calm retreat in your garden  

A garden area may be much more than just a place to raise your preferred plants and flowers.   

It is a place where you may find tranquilly, be close to nature, and unwind after a long and stressful day.   

Space for recline:

Being locked up at home for too long might become boring and repetitive.  Sometimes all you need is a spot to sit down, relax, and get closer to nature.   

Paths to peace:

Do you have a large garden with several zones for different types of plants and flowers? Then you can design various paths that begin at the entrance to each of these areas.   

Fragrant flower beds:

If you favour specific flowers, you can go all out and plant an entire bed of those flowers somewhere near a window that leads to your bedroom or living room.  

Let there be light:

Most people avoid complicated light schemes in the garden because they are perceived as overly complex.   

Have a mini-bridge:

Build a small bridge over a water body to add some Parisian elegance to your garden.   

Install a water fountain:

Flowing water is one of the most relaxing sights, so why not include an attractive water fountain right in the centre? It can be as simple or complicated as you like.
