‘ A garden teaches patience and careful watchfulness ...above all it teaches trust ‘ Gertrude Jekyll
A place to be quiet is a design feature in most gardens . Down a small path , round a corner , behind a tree - we seek out quiet spaces to reflect . Wind chimes , acoustic screens , specific water features and landscaping design will help drown out noises and reduce stress and help restore attention .
