Breathe Easy

Mindfulness Gardens
Breathe Easy is a space for relaxation, retuning and meditating. Two large flower beds have been designed in the shape of lungs. Focusing on your breathing is a key part of mindfulness and meditation.

The central passage between the beds is sunken from street level. One ‘lung’ contains naturalistic planting including perennials and grasses while the other contains edibles and herbs. These raised beds offer spaces for visitors to sit, harvest produce and maintain the garden.

Pinks, purples and violets create harmony. The boundaries, raised beds and edging materials are reclaimed timber sleepers. Seating is provided to assist in mindfulness practice. A sculpture provides a focal point.
