Reconnect with Nature
In a high-paced, stressful world, people value a peaceful outdoor oasis more than ever. Nature is a tonic for the body and soul, helping us to feel better physically (fresh air, soft sunshine) and emotionally (peaceful sounds, birds and wildlife). “This year’s trends are reinventions from a bygone era — helping to reconnect us with nature, rejuvenate the soil and lead us to a more thoughtful approach to life,” reports the Garden Media Group, which has been tracking gardening trends since 2001.
Creating a garden refuge makes reconnecting with nature possible. And the good thing is, it’s as easy as setting up a hammock or chaise lounge beneath a shade tree. Privacy is important for a peaceful hideaway, so consider a well-positioned hedge (for ground-level privacy) or tree (for privacy from second story windows). If you’re impatient, pair a lattice screen with a quick-growing vine or install a privacy fence.
