Gardens are proven to enhance your wellbeing, but why? Covering the design, the plants, and the physical act of gardening, this book uniquely explains the evidence behind why green spaces are good for you. It then shows you how you can use that knowledge to optimize your own outd...oor space for wellbeing. The way you design your garden, and the plants you choose, can impact on your psyche: on your wellbeing and stress levels; on your immune and cardiovascular systems; and on your engagement with nature at a primal level. It can help neutralize pollution from noise, pollens, exhaust fumes and gases, and help reduce your household energy and water consumption. Research in recent years has shown tangible benefits for our wellbeing from the act of gardening and from contact with green spaces: it can counteract obesity, nature deficit disorder, and depression. Understand the science and how you can use it, and your garden will truly become your paradise.
