Creating a Meditation Garden with Minnesota Native Plants Can Recharge Your Soul

If you’ve read any of our blog articles, you are probably aware that we talk often about the benefits of restoring a section of Minnesota land to the way it existed before man disturbed it with plows or road construction. Yes, it creates a refuge and needed habitat for wildlife. Yes, it reduces the need for watering, fertilizing, weeding, and other types of maintenance. Yes, it creates a natural environment that fits more with the history of the area. But did you know that having a spot like this can actually benefit your soul?

We want to talk about natural meditation gardens. You may be familiar with the concept; some hospitals or other care centers (and some memorial chapels) have these soothing spots to relax and contemplate. But many of them use non-native plants, so we’d like to discuss how creating a spot like this using Minnesota native grasses, wildflowers, trees, and shrubs can benefit you personally.

Having a secluded spot outdoors allows you to disconnect from your busy life and re-connect with nature in a multi-sensory way. Anything that involves multiple senses can be incredibly recharging for the mind. And when that spot is planted with native species, it will attract wildlife such as birds, butterflies, and more that are actually native to the area. It’s much more harmonious than what can be produced imported and invasive species. Native plants create a natural environment that fits with the area.

Mental health experts will tell you that gardening is very therapeutic – good for the soul. And knowing you’ve created a spot that can foster threatened wildlife can be a very satisfying feeling.

If the idea of having a natural meditation garden composed of Minnesota native plants appeals to you, we’d love to work with you. We can design a restoration project that will incorporate a variety of native species that Mother Nature intended grow (and thrive) together. We can create a garden of sensory delights that will require very little on your part to maintain. You can just look forward to relaxing and recharging!
