Have you ever found yourself in a situation where the world has gotten too stressful and overwhelming? Maybe you are starting to feel anxious, sad, or scared. If that’s the case, then you might find it comforting to escape into a peaceful setting, like your backyard. In this blog post, we will help you design your oasis in the form of a beautiful garden, but you can create your space in whichever way that will help reduce stress and provide some level of automation.

Choose a Location

You may be tempted to build your garden around your patio or near the pool, but if you are trying to escape from reality, you may want to select a location away from these areas. If you have the space, try building the garden off the ground. Tabletops are perfect for this, since they can be used as planters and have been used in this way for centuries.

Patio Column Removal

Many people will want to use the existing columns from their patio. Unfortunately, removing these columns will look pretty bad to some people. If you decide to do a patio column removal, place a decorative fountain in the middle of your garden to replace the old column. Also, you can use an old door or any other decorative item for this purpose.

Select a Theme

If you are creating a garden in the middle of your patio, you should select your garden’s theme very carefully. Your main goal will be to create a garden that is in line with the style of your home. For example, if your plants are going to be placed around an existing structure, you might want to select a more formal style. On the other hand, if you are going to place planters on an existing tabletop outside, you can choose whatever theme you want.

Design Your Garden

If you are going to design your garden in the western style, you will want to place a reflective pool near the garden entrance and use an old wooden door as a bench. You can also add rocks, statues, and other items to this area of your garden if you wish. The eastern style involves placing flowers and plants along the edges of a pond or stream, with no direct access to water in the center of your garden.


You now have all of the information you need to create a tranquil backyard. It is recommended to design your garden during the spring when flowers are in bloom so that you can enjoy your hard work when you are finished.
