Creating a Naturally Simple Wellness GardenAs the world becomes more and more complicated, it seems that we humans are looking for more ways to simplify our lives. Gardening can be a great way to relax and simplify your life by growing some of your own food and growing medicinal plants and herbs that may be able to relieve pain and other symptoms you might have.

Some people might strive to have an expanded wellness garden that features a pond and wildlife, including fish. Others may be perfectly happy tending to a few plants in a container garden. No matter how large or small the garden, there are ways you can simplify the plan.

People may also plan their wellness gardens according to their specific needs. For example, if you’re pining for a place to go and get away from it all, read a book and listen to water and nature sounds, you’ll want to incorporate a water feature and a quiet, comfortable place to relax and be alone.

If you see yourself growing plants and herbs that will be concocted into medicinal mixtures, you’ll be more interested in the medicinal herbs and plants that fit your particular needs. Here are a few ideas about how to plan your wellness garden so that it’s simple, but contains benefits especially for you.

Reduce Stress

If relieving stress is the main goal of your wellness garden, you can simplify the space by adding a few items that will make a large impact. For example, a small waterfall or fountain that’s pre-formed and easy to maintain is a perfect addition to the wellness garden.

Make Surroundings Familiar

A familiar setting in your wellness garden is a simple, but effective way to create a garden space you’ll visit often. Comfy pillows, outdoor art, statues and other familiar items can make you feel right at home.

Reduce Expenses

Medicines and food for the table are extraordinarily expensive, but showcasing some food such as lettuce and tomatoes (and mint for stomach ailments) in your wellness garden can keep the money in your pocket.


Ecologically planned gardens can help protect and heal the planet by creating small areas of healthy ecosystems that will help the Earth as well as help you with your needs. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. Look online for plans that will help you plan an environmentally-friendly wellness garden.

Gardening is both self-sufficient and can be therapeutic and help your well-being. Even if you don’t have a large garden space, you can create your own little bit of garden heaven with a small patio or even a sunny window sill.
