There is nothing in life that compares to relaxing in your backyard retreat for a few hours each week. The meditation and comfort it can provide can give you the clarity to make it through those long meetings and daily routines. Incorporating the following ideas into your landscape design can give you the perfect place to sit back and recharge your batteries.
- Create a hidden clearing. By placing a clearing among tall stands of grass, within trees, and behind hedges you will have shelter that blocks the outside world from peeking in and distracting your quiet reflection.
- Incorporate arbors and other tall features that can be draped in foliage to provide an attractive and shaded shelter for you to relax beneath.
- Use the natural landscape to your advantage. Tuck your secret retreat behind hills, along cliffs, or behind the house where it can’t be easily seen. By incorporating stones, tall shrubbery, and trees along the path to the garden, you will help ensure your garden remains your landscapes best kept secret.
