Summary
  • "Explore the fascinating science behind how green spaces and gardening--the design, the plants, and the physical activity of gardening--can impact positively on your well-being. Then use this newfound knowledge to evolve your own outdoor space into a mind- and body-nurturing environment. The same principles apply to a small balcony, a large suburban or country garden, or a shared community garden"--
  • Your garden could become even better for you. Discover how certain plants can form a barrier against air and noise pollution, why green is so good for us, the way plants can help to save energy, how birdsong alleviates anxiety. Every recommendation is backed by scientific research, drawn together by experts and garden designers from Royal Horticultural Society and the Chelsea Flower Show, who suggest how to translate the science into ideas for your yard and garden, regardless of how much space you have. With this groundbreaking book, find out how, in sometimes very simple ways, you can create an outdoor (or even indoor) green space that nourishes your mind and body, and is good for our planet too
