A beautiful landscape will always attract anyone to outside, no matter how much they like being indoor. There’s a certain kind of feeling that makes you feel relaxed and refreshed just from basking under the sun, sitting under a tree, staring at the green lawns and flowers or even from listening to the shrill sounds of birds and crickets. It’s widely believed that relaxing in a place that’s rich in nature that has been carefully designed to retain its beauty, brings about peace, healing and concentration.
