Garden Accents

Gardens provide a sanctuary, a place to pause and reflect, to regain our equilibrium, and to appreciate our place in the world. A good garden space allows for some privacy, a focal point for contemplation, a consideration of scale, and some frame around the space (such as a screen, fence, hedge, or wall). If these elements are addressed, gardens become personal, spirit-nurturing oases (Messervy, 2006).
