Landscape Therapy - Guide and Tips

The benefits landscaping therapy can do for you

For a long time, people in high-stress jobs and situations have been encouraged to go to a quiet place, shut the door, close their eyes, and let their minds wander to a beautiful and safe place. Studies have shown that even a few moments of mental respite reduces blood pressure, and heart rate and allows muscles to relax. In recent years, this type of personal stress reduction has become even more comfortable and accessible as therapy gardens have been created to provide a physical place to reflect and relieve stress.

Initially, “healing” gardens were created in hospitals and other health care facilities to give patients an area to go to get away from the sterile environment of the hospital setting. The benefits were dramatic. Since then, the concept of landscape therapy gardens has grown in importance and popularity. Stress is rampant in this country, and the importance of having a place to “get away from it all” has grown accordingly. Commercially, resort facilities have tried to fill this need for those who can afford to go.

However, a healing garden does not need to be expensive in an exotic location. It can be a thoughtfully designed garden at a company or school or in a public yard in a neighborhood. It can even be a quiet spot in a nook in the backyard of a home. Many backyard gardens have served their purpose in the past without being recognized for their long-term benefits.

Escape with landscape therapy

The key to a helpful landscape therapy garden is a lack of drama. A dramatic waterfall feature is a wonder to look at, but a simple reflecting pool or a small babbling stream can bring a greater sense of peace and calm. Space should include comfortable seating areas that encourage a person to stay and develop a sense of calm and reflection.

The garden environment should be soothing and relaxing and should include relaxing plants to the mind, including those that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Bird feeders, watering stations, and perches become points of focus and playful points of interest. The aroma should also be part of the garden. Many modern plants have been bred for beauty but have lost the smell of the heirloom varieties. Antique roses and herbs can provide a gentle, peaceful aroma throughout the space.

Surrounding the garden should be some form of barrier to the stressful outside world. A raw fence doesn’t enhance the desired mood, but an ivy-covered one can. A bamboo screen or a trellis of climbing roses can also create this sense of being away from the world. Sadly, it is not always possible to isolate the garden from the sounds of daily life, but if the visual appeal is active, the mind can block out the sounds, even if only for a while.

As the world becomes more stressful, places of calm and respite are becoming more necessary, whether in the workplace or at home.

Running Bamboo - TN Nursery

Bamboo Plant

Running Bamboo is a versatile and fast-growing species that offers many benefits when incorporated into landscaping projects. Its unique characteristics and practical attributes make it popular for enhancing outdoor spaces with aesthetic and functional advantages. It is a shrub that will grow outwards almost as quickly as upwards. Although primarily an ornamental species, it does serve several purposes within a given landscape. Let's take a closer look at what this Bamboo Plant looks like and why you'll want to have it on your property. The Physical Attributes of Bamboo Plant It typically has a golden stalk from which a series of green leaves will shoot out. The trees that you see will shoot from stalks that grow horizontally along the ground, which is why they are referred to as runners. You can see several inches or feet of vertical growth per season, much of which occurs in spring or early summer. It can also grow horizontally up to 10 feet in a single season. This may be fine with neighbors or local authorities if you are in a rural area. However, if you live in a typical neighborhood, consider adding a barrier to prevent runaway growth. What Is Bamboo Plant Used For This type of shrub can be used for a variety of purposes, such as adding some color to a garden or edging your garden, driveway, or other landscape components. You can also use it as a privacy screen or to help dampen noise coming from a neighbor's house, highway, or other sources. It can also help reclaim or revitalize a landscape after a weather event or years of neglect. Be Sustainable With Bamboo Plant Creatures such as rabbits or guinea pigs can use the shoots of this Bamboo Plant for nourishment. However, you probably won't see deer, rodents, or other creatures that typically exist in a suburban setting flocking to your tree, which may help to ensure its long-term survival.
