Writers inspire people with stories, while visual artists can brighten someone’s life with the work of their hands. You may not have a creative block, but as an amateur gardener, you can also inspire the community. You are channeling your creative energies to the garden, and anyone who sees and experiences it may feel inspired as well.
The garden you keep at your home is your place of beauty, quiet and peace. It can also be a place to embrace nature, instead of a perfect assembly of plants and flowers that are pretty to behold.
A Perfect Garden
Industry professional OakleighManor.com shares that garden is a place of serene beauty. In truth, at its heart is an intense battle for survival as living things — plants, insects, birds, and small animals, interact with each other and elemental forces. Recognising the intricate network comprised of living things is important if you want to depart from a gardening approach focusing on use of chemicals, which are potentially dangerous to the environment. Instead of using synthetic pesticides, learn about the insects that pollinate and feed on your plants. Instead of eliminating all the things that crawl, fly and chew on leaves, learn about their roles in the growth cycle of plants.
Another Approach to Gardening
There was a time when garden design authorities would not sanction any divergence from manicured lawns and perfect rows of flowers. This year, rurality and grass roots gardening are the popular gardening trends. Gardens are not just places where you can admire blooming flowers, and ornamental shrubs. Nowadays, the garden is the place where you harvest the coriander and thyme you use to prepare your next meal.
You can inspire the people in the community not only with the lovely flowers and vibrant greens in your garden. Set aside the idea of achieving perfection, and subscribe instead to promoting chemical-free nurturing of plants.
