A home reflects the energy with which you design it. If you have intense posters all over the wall, taxidermy hanging around and a large bar in the middle of your living room, odds are you will not feel the most relaxed in that space, but perhaps you’ll feel an access of power. If you paint your bedroom bright hot pink, you may feel a little over-the-top energy in that space compared to a room that is a calming eggshell blue.
Of course, these examples are quite specific. Sometimes, we wish to go for more of a ‘vibe’ than specific insert as unignorable as these. You may start to find out just how difficult renovating an interior space is. However, one thing that is rarely brought up is how to renovate your exterior space, namely your garden, with this kind of ‘vibe’ in mind.
Is it possible to do this? To say, make a garden space a more relaxing place to occupy? Of course, you cannot click your fingers and have nature conform to your will. But you can come pretty close:
A Space To Relax
A garden is a lovely place to inhabit, but do you have a comfortable place to sit and relax within it? It can often be that while garden furniture is practical and comfortable for the most part, the weather-proof materials it is made from (such as cast iron, plastic or dense woods) may not be as comfortable as your interior furniture. This is quite obvious, but it’s important to keep in mind. It can help you decide on purchasing something a little more comfortable, such as a lounging deck chair, place more weather-resistant cushions on your long wooden furniture, or could potentially motivate you to purchase a garden lounger worth using. This way, you can sit and relax in your green space most effectively.
A visual feature in your garden can be a great idea. A bird feeder might help you attract them to your garden, while bird tables could help them sit around and socialize. The little birds will get a place to relax, hang out and refresh themselves, and you will have a comfortable garden feature to appreciate and stay on top of. It’s tiny little implements like this that you may not think would make such a difference, but in execution, that impression is absolutely proven wrong.
Privacy is an important part of feeling as though you can relax in a garden. Planting trees to help obfuscate the eye line of those with windows facing into your garden, installing larger fences, or simply keeping your gate cutoff to the back garden closed and locked can ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed in this space through and through. Privacy matters in many other areas of the house, so why not this one?
With this advice, you are certain to help your garden space become more peaceful.
