The garden in our life

A house with a garden will certainly be judged as more beautiful than a better built house without this important detail; this happens because the garden has an intrinsic charm that is still difficult to explain but terribly effective, the same charm that has brought it to the top of the top list of requests made to real estate agents around the world as a fundamental option that the house to buy must have. Born as a television phenomenon thanks to film productions for cinema and television of American origin, the garden has quickly traveled around the world and today is still appreciated because a reason has been added to the original one of beauty, namely the ability to greatly improve the quality of life of the owner, allowing him to do many more things, but above all allowing you to enjoy a private natural space in which to dissolve the tensions accumulated in the working day or busy day and get back to really living. All this is often achieved by working, or by carrying out those garden maintenance chores that however engage both the body and the mind, giving a further hand to forget the thoughts of the errands completed and still to be done, which often chase us even outside the workplace making it impossible for us to stop working for real.

The beauty of the garden


We have often talked in various articles on our site about the positive effects that the garden has on our mind and on our relaxation, also advising our loyal readers various methods to amplify this effect or to succeed if unfortunately it had never happened to us yet. In this article, however, we want to talk about the beauty of the garden, of that aesthetic part of it that still manages to give a nice lift to the mood even on a bad day. To do this, the garden relies on personal pride, on material satisfaction; in fact, anyone feels satisfaction in admiring something they own and find beautiful. This is absolutely the case in the home garden, that if kept with the right and simple care and if furnished according to our personal tastes and spontaneous inspirations, it can only please us deeply and give us great satisfaction. But what are the best conditions, those in which a garden gives its best? In reality, the garden will certainly always be beautiful; at most we can conclude that in some periods of the year it is more usable, but as a difference in beauty the border is really blurred. Specifically, it seems clear to us that in summer, with longer, warmer and sunnier days, with less rain and cold around, the garden is more usable, but with mild winters it doesn’t necessarily mean that it should be abandoned from October to March. those in which a garden gives its best?

Winter gardens

Returning to the discussion of the previous paragraph, let’s see what are the beauties of the gardens in the winter season. In winter it is clear that the garden cannot be used as in summer for sunbathing, letting the children play, hanging clothes to dry or other activities; it’s all the fault of bad weather and cold, which often discourages going out, especially in the evening when it is really impossible to organize parties. But winter objectively has an intrinsic elegance, something that is given by the movement due to the wind and by the light that is never direct and clear but almost suffused. This effect is amplified in a garden, where the blowing of the wind makes the plants lavish in synchronous, gradual and elegant movements, all to be admired. Likewise, if we are lucky enough to live in a place where winter also gives some snow, we will be able to admire our garden of a pure white color that will make it simply irresistible and impossible not to photograph. Not only that, in this situation it will also be impossible to keep children from covering up and going outside to play in the snow, another huge possibility given to us by the garden.

Romance and practicality

The description of the winter garden in the previous paragraph is a romantic and imaginative approach to the winter garden; but it is right, because life becomes dull and sad without dreaming a little and without experiencing these emotions. But we must remember that we are at home, covered and with the heating on, that we admire the beautiful winter garden; the garden, and all its components, however, are outside, in the cold, and we know how plants, which are still living beings, could sometimes be affected by this situation. In general it depends on the type of plant we consider, because there are species such as pine and fir that really love the cold, also by virtue of a force that has made them spread practically everywhere in the world. On the other hand, if we talk about flower species, we find the vast majority of plants that will never manage to survive a winter exposed to the elements. Most of them undergo both nocturnal changes and frosts, both the direct blowing of the wind and the pouring rain, all things that lead to their final death.
