Designing Your Perfect Wellness Garden

Here at Sensory Six, we describe our design style as “21st Century Zen™”: luxurious, harmonic and calming. Our designs are ones that appeal to all the senses and are grounded in nature. When the Summer weather arrives, it seems everything is better done outside like placing plants and flowers into aesthetically pleasing planters, hosting a group of friends for dinner, or simply relaxing in a shady lounger. At Sensory Six, we believe that your outdoor space should be as sophisticated and enjoyable as your indoor spaces. 

Homeowner’s desire to bring health and wellness into their everyday lives has made home gardens even more popular. What they don’t know is that you can bring wellness to your home garden without having to rebuild a whole new design. All you need is to incorporate a few simple ideas to make your current outdoor space a more therapeutic one: 

  • All wellness gardens should be organic in nature and have non-toxic plants.
  • Having an organic garden is important because that means it is environmentally friendly. Use natural materials in your home garden that will promote health and are safe for the environment. 
  • While having a beautiful garden is also important, be sure that your garden design is functional. The main goal is to create a wellness garden that is perfect for you in both form and function.

Spending time outdoors, especially in green spaces, is one of the fastest ways to improve your health and happiness. Plants are believed to be good for one’s health, while also adding instant color and glamour to your outdoor space. Plants improve air quality by creating oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide, regulating humidity, and absorbing harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds. At Sensory Six, our designs focus on enabling people to enjoy lives filled with energy.

Check out a few of our favorite home gardens that promote both luxury and wellness:

If you are looking to transform your outdoor space into a more contemporary space, this is the garden for you! This garden layout encourages guests to experience and take in the whole outdoor space, from the front entrance walkway to the olive trees in the back of the home.

Accenting your outdoor space with natural elements, incorporating stonework around an in-ground pool, a fire pit, and seating for all, makes for an instantly inviting space for guests.

What about making your garden more than just an outdoor area to eat, drink and soak up the sun? Extend it to the indoors, or make it into a relaxing sanctuary with cozy decor, tactile furnishings, a portable bar cart and an outdoor television for continuous entertaining.

Don't underestimate how important it is to incorporate lighting into your home garden. Lighting will create the atmosphere your seeking in your garden. Whether it's a string of lights, lanterns, or solar, the lights you choose will bring real character to your space. Plus, lighting is essential for dining alfresco in the evening!

The summer months are rolling in. Are you rethinking your outdoor space? Looking to incorporate some wellness into your backyard oasis? Your garden, patio or terrace can help turn your home into an ideal Summer destination. A successful outdoor design is the foundation of any great landscape. Contact us at info@SensorySix.com, we would love to turn your outdoor space into a haven.
