Your Wellbeing Garden

£16.99

Gardens can enhance your wellbeing, but why? Covering design, plants, and the act of gardening, this book uniquely explains why green spaces are good for you and shows how to use that knowledge to optimise your outdoor space. The plants you grow and your garden layout can induce relaxation, boost your cardio system, and enhance 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 deficiency order, and promote happiness. Award-winning garden designer Matthew Keightley and RHS scientist Alistair Griffiths pool their expertise to write an inspiring practical book brimming with ideas supported by the latest scientific research on gardens and wellbeing.
