Whether you are taking your morning walk near your home or spending some time with family members in the greens, it is hard to deny that gardens have a certain universal appeal. Apart from adding an aesthetic element to the environment and health benefits, there is something about the presence of gardens in our lives that brighten our world.

At Hiranandani Parks, Chennai, 70 percent of the 360-acre township is dedicated to open green spaces with plenty of themed gardens and thousands of trees. These gardens at the township take the concept one step further by providing all the elements that support a single purpose. Accessories and ornamental items fit the theme too.

Here are a few unique gardens at Hiranandani Parks, Chennai, that promote physical and mental health by using plants and design elements to focus on a particular theme.

Brindavan Garden: One of the favourite hangouts for the residents, the garden has open spaces, lawns, flower beds, and ornamental plants along with well-manicured pathways that provide residents the perfect environment to take their morning and evening walk. What’s more, the garden is surrounded by 27 Nakshatra trees and plants.  The evergreen shrubs and trees represent peace and tranquility and serve as a serene space for quiet meditation.

Butterfly Garden: This garden adds the winged beauty of butterflies along with the loveliness of the flowers to the township. Apart from providing a thriving environment for butterflies, whose natural habitat is increasingly lost to development, the garden encourages the study of insects. Since butterflies need nectar all season long, the well-planned garden is guaranteed to bloom round the year. It is designed to receive plenty of sunshine, offers shelter from wind, a damp area, shrubs, trees, and all other elements that help butterflies to thrive.
