A FOOD FOR­EST, ANY­ONE?

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - The Green Issue -

“I want to im­prove the ‘food for­est’ sec­tion where the fruit trees are lo­cated by plant­ing more ni­tro­gen fix­ing plants, a va­ri­ety of other types of plants and im­prov­ing its soil.

“The other thing I have in mind (which is more im­me­di­ate) is to cre­ate a small de­signer gar­den space for re­cre­ation and a lit­tle util­ity. I’m do­ing this be­cause I have some­one who is in­ter­ested to do­nate a large num­ber of plants to the gar­den. I have looked at the var­i­ous plants that is to be do­nated and have de­signed the space with those plants in mind. The de­sign con­cepts of the space is based on 1.The Fi­bonacci Se­quence, 2.Pri­vacy/Safe Haven, 3.Heal­ing and Herbs, and 4.En­ergy Flow. I de­sign with func­tion first and form sec­ond. I also use Per­ma­cul­ture prin­ci­ples in my de­signs.” – Ly­mun Loo.
