Tips for creating your own peaceful garden by following these easy tips.

Everyone wants to create an area in their yard where you can find peace, serenity and quiet time for mediation and reflection.  It is not all that difficult if you are willing to look inward and get deeply personal and open to trying a few suggestions.  How about a place to escape from the daily stress that surrounds us all.  Take your time and be open to some of these suggestions and you will be greatly rewarded.

Visualize your garden ideal:  To relax and connect to your garden you need to create something that speaks directly to you.  This means a safe place from your childhood, whether that means potted fragrant plants  you love or stones from a river you loved to visit. Try to copy the feel you remember and find restful and comfortable.  Use colored pottery that expresses your moods.  Light blue or bright red can speak to you in completely different ways.  Find your mojo!

Plan your privacy.  Nobody wants to go to the back yard to rest and find yourself looking at your neighbors over the fence.  Ideally you want an enclose of some sort. This can be an area surrounded by large planters with bamboo, trees or palms in them.  You can even do a gazebo or a portable awning that will give you a canopy.  This gives a sense of protection and privacy that you desire.

Fun elements:  How about adding a water fall or garden bowl.  The sound of water flowing is very peaceful.  Wind Chimes soothe you or a birdbath that will attract birds chirping?  Glass globes that reflect light and fire pits and torches that light up the night. Lay down carpets for warmth and color and add lots of comfortable pillows to relax in.  This is the time to have fun and get creative.

And lastly, keep comfort in mind.  Have a comfortable chair or garden bench handy.  Maybe a chaise to relax or a table to write.  Use your privacy garden for yoga or pilates where you can exercise slowly in the fresh air and sunlight.  Keep a storage box to hold towels and mats so they are ready to go.  Garden art or statues are always beautiful.  Buddha or St Francis statues make these privacy areas very personal for prayer.
