Simple Things for a Peaceful Outdoor Environment

There are so many simple things you can do in creating a peaceful outdoor environment. Here are just a few to get you started:

  • Paint garden ornaments with yogurt to encourage lichens.
  • Feed the birds in your garden. Helping wildlife is always good karma.
  • Install a water feature, such as a small pond in your garden. Cultivate water lilies on the surface of the water to symbolize abundance.
  • Make an arbor in your garden or backyard by trailing fast-growing climbers over a simple timber framework. Place a garden seat beneath your arbor to give you some shade in the summer months.
  • Plant an herbal peace garden, perhaps positioning clumps of herbs to make the shape of a dove, a heart or some other symbolic device.
  • Plant a tree or grow your own vegetables.

Have some fun creating a beautiful and peaceful outdoor environment!
