Rudyard Kipling once stated, “Gardens are not made by singing 'Oh, how beautiful!' and sitting in the shade.” But the Friday garden/design thought is do you have comfortable places to sit? It’s a logical question to ask yourself and it is one you may not ponder too often, especially if work is more prevalent in the garden than relaxing in it for a bit. You may forget that your garden visitor may seek a comfortable place to take it all in.
Whether the design and flow of your landscape is open or if intimate spaces exist, when one wanders through, think about the perfect place where one might sit. And what elements do you prefer? Sitting walls versus a comfy chair and is there a view for one to take in? You may ask yourself would one linger long or seek only a fleeting moment in the summer air?
With so many options to consider, just remember to give your garden visitor a chair. Whether it’s a built-in or something flexible, possibly serving more than one purpose, you want your visitor to be comfortable and to linger so someone can say how beautiful your garden is.
