Sound and Scent in the garden

What does your garden do for you? Landscaping designs usually focus on only one of your senses, sight. You should endeavor to design a garden that excites many of your senses. Consider arousing your audible and olfactory senses by using fragrances and sounds to evoke different emotions, images, and memories.

Having viburnum, a Korean spice, in your garden, for example, can recreate the scents of spring, while Boxwood scents can help you imagine the June baking sun.

Some of the sounds you should incorporate in your garden include decomposed gravel to create the sound of a French garden, and pea gravel crunching under your feet to recreate the sounds of a cottage garden.
