Gardens have always been seen as a sanctuary; a place to escape from the stresses of life. Nature has very unique healing qualities, and in order to reap the benefits of it, one might be interested in creating a pastel garden. This type of garden showcases light colored plants and flowers of various colors that provoke a deep sense of peace and tranquility. Pink roses, magnolia trees, and morning glories are good examples of the kinds of plants one may use. This, of course, comes down to personal taste and the design of one’s pastel garden.
- Certain colors elicit a visceral reaction from humans: red = stop, green = go, etc.
- Pastel colors are known to make people feel relaxed and refreshed.
- A garden with pastel plants can be an oasis to unwind in after a long day.
