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 optimize your outdoor space.
Discover how certain plants can form a barrier against air and noise pollution, which birdsong alleviates anxiety, how plants can help to save energy, and how to make your garden good for you.
Find out how, in sometimes very simple ways, you can create an outdoor space that nourishes your mind and body, and is good for our planet too. Backed by scientific research, drawn together by the team of RHS scientists and experts, RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden designer Matt Keightley suggests how to translate the science into ideas for your garden.
