Along with proportion and placement, soil quality is an essential aspect of Maharishi Vedic Garden Design.
'Soil is a very generous, broad term for anything from 100 per cent compost to just sand,' said Vedic Gardening expert Dr Susie Swan, who spoke recently along with Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture expert Dr Peter Swan on radio station KHOE's programme A Chat with the Dean. They discussed these agricultural programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi with Maharishi University of Management Dean of Faculty Dr Cathy Gorini.
Both experts consider soil something 'to be treated with great respect and sensitivity. It is in fact a bank that you invest in,' Dr Susie Swan continued. 'It's not just what you are putting into the soil, it's what you are enlivening as the soil's own self-sufficient agents to make it function. Soil existed long before we did and was managing just fine.'
Even weeds play can play a role in soil quality, she said. Thistles, for example, grow well in fields where the soil is compacted, and they have a powerful root system that can break the soil apart. 'Everything is part of the whole; everything is doing its bit to heal and take the system on and evolve,' said Dr Peter Swan.
Placement and proportion are other key elements of Vedic Garden Design, Dr Susie Swan continued. Maharishi Vedic Garden Design reveals the most auspicious placement for specific plants, and also for fountains or waterfalls if desired.
Many people want both flower gardens and edible gardens of vegetables, herbs, and fruits. Vedic Garden Design offers 'a cross-pollination of all aspects of beauty and functionality and nourishment,' Dr Swan said.
Consultations are also available that take into account very refined values of Vedic Garden Design such as Vedic Astrology.
