The plants you grow and your choice of garden layout can encourage relaxation, boost your cardio system, and improve mood. A well-planned space will neutralise pollution, mask noise, and reduce household energy and water consumption. And gardening itself can improve flexibility and fitness, counteract nature deficit disorder, and promote happiness. Covering design, plants, and the act of gardening, this book explains why green spaces are good for you and shows how to use that knowledge to optimise your outdoor space.
