Have you ever wondered how astrology plays a role in determining the best garden designs for your zodiac sign?
Recently, the experts at OnBuy Garden Furniture Sets (an online marketplace in Britain) applied astrology theory to inspire homeowners and gardeners with a passion for what garden design to choose based on the zodiac calendar.
Different styles were found to be most suitable for each zodiac sign based on personality traits, needs, and looks.
Here is what they found:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Garden design: oversized garden
Aries likes to have a big presence, and there’s no better way to make your presence known than to think big! Micheal John McGarr, landscape designer, explained that “all garden designs need larger scale trees or shrubs to create grandeur and visual impact – even in a small backyard”. This could also be achieved through larger chairs and furniture.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Garden design: swimming pools and luxury touches
A Taurus likes to relax in serene surroundings, so swimming pools or natural pools with luxury additions that can be found in a vacation setting will give them that perfect blissful environment. Travel restrictions over the past two years have made our outdoor spaces all the more important for well-being, according to the UK Office for National Statistics, so now is more than ever the time to create the place to relax outdoors looking perfect.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Garden design: grow your own
Gemini is a busy sign that some say needs a clone of itself to get everything done. Therefore, a project garden that requires a lot of attention will allow their energetic personality to have something to focus on. Growing seasonal vegetables is the perfect pastime for a busy Gemini.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Garden design: low carbon garden
Those under the sign of Cancer are attractive yet intuitive, which means they easily pick up any energy around the house, and are therefore likely to be wary of the overall benefits of a low-carbon garden. Growing a hedge is considered an excellent method, according to RHS.org (Britain’s Royal Horticultural Society), as it stores carbon and provides food and shelter for wildlife.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Garden Design: Jewel Colored Gardens
This fiery fire sign is known for soaking up the sun while maintaining a natural air of royalty, so incorporating jewel colors fit for a king or queen creates that regal atmosphere any garden deserves. The combination of yellows and purples is known to be attractive to bees, and with Google Trends showing a 190% increase in search volumes for “jewel tones” in the spring of last year, it’s clear that it’s is the color of the year for spring gardens.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Garden Design: Sanctuary of Lux
Virgo earth sign represents practical and perfectionist qualities, so a luxury getaway in their own backyard is just what they need, pairing comfortable seating with beautiful natural scenery that meets their practical and perfectionist needs.
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Garden Design: Wildlife Aware
Libras champion harmony and equality, so creating an environment that provides a good host for local wildlife is a perfect match for them. Simple things like water sources, bird feeders, and wildlife-friendly gardening practices will create the harmonious garden in which they will also thrive.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 21)
Garden design: wild garden
Scorpios are strong characters who embody independence and perseverance, and a garden that embraces their wild side will best represent them. Designing a garden with lots of greenery, such as overgrown shrubs and a selection of wild, colorful plants, will fill the garden with personality and highlight its independence and bold style.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Garden Design: Wabi-Sabi Garden
This sign is known for being spontaneous and craving for adventure, so a garden that embraces imperfections and focuses on ever-changing natural materials that stray from the standard sleek urban style is ideal for a Sagittarius. This style of garden involves the use of weathered stones and artificial objects as well as plants as key design elements.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Garden design: tapestry lawn
Capricorns are known to be practical, ambitious, and self-reliant. This makes the grass-free, low-maintenance tapestry lawn a perfect fit as it matches their self-sufficient nature – and allows them to pursue their other big ambitions. Simply landscape your lawn with low, tolerant plants, to evolve into a colorful lawn rich in texture and very little hassle.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Garden design: reoriented
This humanitarian sign represents a mystical healer who brings water and life to the earth, and designing their garden from repurposed products suits them perfectly, giving unwanted materials new life while creating a beautiful and natural environment.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Garden design: herb garden
Pisces are generous natures, so a garden that grows herbs that they can use to cook and give to others is a perfect way to put their qualities to good use.
