Overview

66 ways really offers an introduction about the scope and brevity of gardening. Plants, birdlife, insects, and life itself form part of the garden, and they all seek sustainability. It’s a natural function. Our task as gardener is to provide that place so all within are content and happy. That really becomes the reward of sustainability.
This is a book about gardening practice. Sustainability has come along for the ride because good gardening practice is about sustainability There are many benefits including that of sustaining the health of our plants, soils, water presence, birds and animals visiting the garden, fruits and vegetables, and what the garden provides for our well-being and satisfaction of its visual appeal.
My studies and application of Feng Shui led me to a realisation; Feng Shui is a very sustainable practice, a revelation like the parting of the mists. I realised a responsive and beneficial Feng Shui garden offers what those ancient Chinese sought. Surroundings that they could connect to and offering continued health, prosperity and well-being.
I’ve incorporated something of my interpretation of Feng Shui to introduce some links. I haven’t purposely bound the book around Feng Shui because it would lead away from the ideas presented. Besides, an intensive explanation about things like Yin and Yang, Qi or Chi, the sha or sheng of a garden and Five Element Balance are all intense and bewildering. Many of my publications offer something more in depth explanations about Feng Shui within the garden.

Meet the Author

Ross Lamond is the youngest member of a well-known and respected dairy farming family of the New South Wales South Coast, Australia.He schooled away from home, completing secondary studies at Sydney Grammar School, Sydney. Upon leaving school, Ross returned to the family farm and over a forty year period, gained extensive experience in dairying, beef cattle production, sugarcane, small crop cultivation and horticulture. An ever present interest in the garden naturalised into that of a nurseryman, landscape gardener and grower of in ground trees for landscape.Concern about environmental issues such as tree decline, dry land salinity and habitat degradation led Ross into external studies in Environment at Mitchell College of Advanced Education at Bathurst, followed by post graduate studies in Urban and Regional planning at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane.A chance reading of a Feng Shui publication in 1998, introduced Ross to Feng Shui and its influence on our lives and surroundings. He applied some of its principles into the garden and developed his own interpretation of Feng Shui garnished through personal experience and observation. The interest has led Ross into a journey of self-discovery including that of nature, environmentalism and spirituality. It’s an ever growing interest.Ross lives by himself, has four grown up children, and likes to travel and garden and write about his experiences and observations.
