To Make Your Garden Memorable, Add a Hint of Mystery

“Mystique” is one of those words that conjures up enticing and seductive mental images, perhaps of a clandestine meeting in the shadows in a foreign country. It’s one of those provocative words that always leaves something to the imagination. Do a quick online or dictionary search and you’ll see it defined as “a fascinating aura of mystery, awe and power surrounding something or someone.” It has been my experience that great gardens include an element of mystique, an aura of mystery and awe. They are much less predictable than most of the suburban tract spaces we see today.

Let’s see how to add a layer of mystique to our gardens and, in the process, create a space that draws visitors back for more.
