A serene and relaxing garden space calms the nerves and relieves daily stress. Keep the garden design simple and uniform. Choose plants and additional features that add to the beauty and tranquility of the garden area and stimulate sensory perceptions including seeing, hearing and smelling. Even a small space can offer a serene retreat and a relaxing environment in which you find solace and comfort. Plant shrubs, flowers and groundcovers in a simple color palette of only one or two colors, so the garden offers a harmonious visual appearance. Use only a few plant varieties and mass plantings of each for fullness without clutter. Frame serene scenic views with taller plants on each side and low growth beneath. Choose flowers that attract butterflies and other helpful insects and avoid plants, such as peonies, that may attract ants and other irritating insects. Add climbing vines, such as trumpet vine, which attract hummingbirds and butterflies, attached to a trellis for a living wall of beautiful visual stimulation. Add fragrance to the garden without attracting flying insects by planting herbs. Plant creeping thyme to add texture and fragrance in walkways and between garden pavers, beds of lavender to calm the nerves, and mints to soothe through your sense of smell. Incorporate calming sounds into the garden and mask unpleasant sounds, such as a nearby busy street, by adding a fountain or other water feature. Create a soothing environment for your auditory sense using wind chimes made of wood or shells for sounds that enhance the peacefulness of the garden. Distribute seating to enjoy the serenity of the garden. Place chairs or benches with pillows in soft outdoor fabrics that match the bloom colors in strategic places to enjoy each section of the garden oasis. Use large landscape rocks or logs for seating within the natural setting. and set benches in place to enjoy the calming view. (homeguides.sfgate.com).
