Create an Escape with Landscaping

escape mrgWhether you have five acres to play with or just a small apartment balcony, there are things you can do with your landscaping that allow you to create a place of escape. Imagine having a small corner where you can read, enjoy the warm weather or simply relax.

For smaller spaces, consider adding a container garden. In containers, you can plant just about any fruit or veggie; potatoes, cucumbers and tomatoes all have miniature versions designed to be grown in containers and other small spaces. To add color, plant nasturtium, and if you’re not bothered by bees, add some lavender for a lovely aroma. Another item that is perfect for small spaces is a tabletop fountain. The sound of running water is extremely calming, and a small fountain can be the perfect addition to your balcony. If you have more room to work with, you can build a small pond or install a larger fountain. Simply add a comfortable chair to your landscaping, and you’re set!

Surround yourself with your favorite floral fragrances, as well as fruits and veggies, using raised garden beds. If you’re trying to determine the perfect spot, consider a secluded corner that gets a bit of shade so you can enjoy it during hot afternoons.
