10 Expert Tips for crafting your own personal wellbeing garden to elevate your health and lifestyle

  1. Seek what you need: Determine the primary purpose of your well-being garden. Whether it’s for relaxation, meditation, exercise, or growing your own produce, knowing the garden’s purpose will guide your choices.
  1. Create a secluded entrance: the right entrance to your garden can create a sense of transition from the outside world to your private retreat while creating a mood of anticipation and intrigue.
  2. Enclosure and Privacy: an enclosed space offers a sheltered environment that feels safe and secure. This feeling of protection triggers a relaxation response, helping to reduce stress hormones and promote a calm state of mind.
  3. Shelter with lush greenery: Create shaded areas using structures such as pergolas or trees to provide relief from direct sunlight.
  4. Comfortable seating: Choose comfortable and inviting seating options, such as cushioned benches, hammocks, or swing chairs. These seating areas invite you to relax and enjoy the garden.
  5. Incorporate mindfulness elements: Install a water feature or wind chimes to create soothing sounds, walking paths, a labyrinth, a designated meditation area, or possibly a Zen Garden.
  6. Create a sensory garden: Introduce a variety of textures, shapes, fragrance and materials in your garden to engage different senses. Incorporate elements like smooth pebbles, soft grass, rough bark, and tactile sculptures. Sensory gardens can be beneficial for children, the elderly, those with cognitive impairments to name but a few.
  7. Select a calming colour palette: opt for soft and cool tones like blues, greens, white and purples. These colours have a soothing effect and contribute to a peaceful atmosphere.
  8. Keep it natural: use stone, wood, and gravel. Incorporate them into pathways, seating areas, and other decorative elements.
  9. Give it the personal touch: include items that hold special significance for you, evoking positive emotions.
