Some families gather specifically to watch movies or favorite TV shows. But others may want to make these lounges tech-free to avoid disrupting family conversation, games, and relaxation. “Its a place where [family] members might meditate and take a break from everyday life, talk, or read a book,” says broker-associate Carol Cassis, a colleague of Burkes in Miami. Cindy Graham, a licensed psychologist and founder of Brighter Hope Wellness Center in Clarksville, Md., considers it a matter of personal family preference and balance. “Many millennials who grew up with technology are now raising children and helping to push the pendulum back the other way. They are advocating to spend time together without as much technology as they may have had, and the results can be positive,” she says. “The family is the first place to learn to interact with others, and, in my work, we are seeing better language development [with less technology use] since theres increased opportunity for conversations and social interaction.”
These therapy gardens arent just for those seeking relief, however, says Langrall, who also writes the “Santa Fe in Bloom” column for the Santa Fe New Mexican. “Caregivers may find it helpful to escape outside for a few minutes to relieve their stress,” she adds. With interest in therapy gardens growing, its important that youre able to help clients understand what elements they might want to incorporate, including plants, hardscape, and architectural features. And if you land a listing that already has this kind of garden, make sure you understand how it can help a home stand out amid less nurturing inventory.
