it is a fascinating look at little known garden design ideas that enhance well being in an outdoor space based on ancient practices and modern discoveries....
my basic premise is that there is life in a stone, a plant, a tree and even water. When we are in a serene garden we connect to an 'aliveness' that resides in these living forms.
Find out why a garden on the north side of a house is best suited for a viewing garden and why east is considered 'the most auspicious direction'. Learn what the 'moth theory' is and how to use it for the best outdoor lighting layout! Enjoy a lively discussion about geomagnetics and determining the 'power spot' in a landscape. And discover how the colors in a garden can arouse or calm and which plants are best for a serene outdoor space...
Doors open at 6 pm (come then for refreshments and to look around); the hour presentation starts at 6:30pm
