A beautiful garden or landscape can mean good mental and physical health. During the Bourgeois Movement in Old France and parts of Europe, physicians encouraged gardening and fervent usage of the great outdoors in order to promote overall good health and irridicate diseases. But also, the new work ethic began creating new health issues. People began working long hours and stress was affecting them. You can still see the effects of the Bourgeois Movement throughout Europe in large and small homes. You know your neighbor because, they too, are spending time meditating, strolling or working in their gardens.
