Landscape Psychology 101

How your landscape can change your mind, your mood, and your life.

Did you know that the layout, texture, and color of your landscape can have profound effects on your life? Find out how you can use this knowledge to your advantage. We will be looking at:

  • How colorful plants can tell you where to go.
  • Why making our lizard brains happy is an important factor in good landscaping
  • How the French Revolution could have been avoided through better landscaping
  • Why Feng Shui works and how you can use it to create landscapes that harvest good luck
  • Why we are so addicted to lawns and why we will probably always want one.
  • Why what you don’t see in a landscapeis more important than what you do see
