Zen Landscape Design

Ananda Landscapes designs relaxing getaways for meditation. Here, you can escape into your own world and forget all your worries. Create a relaxing environment with the following features that are backed by science!

Inspired by the Bring Some Serious Zen to Your Outdoor Living Space Article written by Outdoor Art Pros. We reflected on our services and realized that we enrich peoples lives by designing a calming space where they can switch off.

The sound of water is zen

Studies have shown that the sound of flowing water is soothing and relaxing. According to Live Science, this is because our brains interpret sounds as being threatening or non-threatening, the jarring sound being more threatening and soft constant noises like running water are soothing.


Surround yourself in Nature to de-stress

Breathe fresh oxygen, take a step away from your phone, and appreciate your natural surroundings. Your body and mind will feel better for it.

“Nature can be beneficial for mental health,” says Irina Wen, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and clinical director of the Steven A. Military Family Clinic at NYU Langone Medical Center.

An animal friend to calm you

Having pets such as a dog, cat or even fish in a koi pond, can be relaxing. According to Help Guide, having a pet can elevate levels of serotonin and dopamine. Make sure that you have a functional space to support your new best friend.
