How to Create a Naturalized Healing Garden

Winter Yoga GardensBreast cancer survivors are always searching for ways to minimize toxins and pesticide in their lives. Create a naturalized garden that offers so many benefits on the level of health, environment, economy, efficiency, and time management.

Health: by minimizing lawn and adding shrubs, trees, and plants you are contributing to the air, allowing for more oxygen to be cleaned, allowing you to breathe fresher air.

Environment: With the mass of development arising every day, we have lost much of our biodiversity that makes the ecological world go around. A naturalized garden can promote life in the form of insects, butterflies, birds and small animals. (Keep in mind, they won’t bug you, they’ll just enjoy your garden)

Economy: Most plants recommended for a Naturalized garden will need little attention once they are established. You will save money by not having to water plants every day. A well planned naturalized garden will do well with the water nature provides. Most plants are also inexpensive, and can often be shared among other natural garden lovers.

Efficiency: Naturalized gardens, once established, become their own working engine. The insects are turning the soil and adding nutrients every day, the bees birds and butterflies are taking care of the pollination of plants. In time, this leaves little else for you to do except watch and enjoy!

Time management: No more weekly lawn cutting or water schedules. No worrying over water restrictions, or bad patches in the lawn. A naturalized garden flows and grows without much of your help. Mostly, you get to enjoy it!

Consider adding a patio centered in your naturalized space and allow yourself to be part of nature, while enjoying your own personal oasis!

    That’s me in the picture:))) My hubby took it at The Lil Yoga Barn at Crabtree Gardens. We are honored the image was used for education on naturalized gardens for healing. Crabtree Gardens (an organic garden in NEPA owned by Sandi & Dave Crabtree) prides themselves on being a sanctuary to help others….body, mind & spirit. Also, my mother is a breast cancer survivor so your blog touched my heart for that reason as well. We have held yoga events at the gardens the last few years to benefit the American Cancer Society. The images of all in pink among the flowers are just beautiful! Thank you for educating & spreading the love! ~Angela Ferdinand
