    would you recommend Zoysia for Massachusetts?
  • PRO

    Zoysia is a warm season grass that does best in Grass Climate Zones 8-9-10-11-12. Massachusetts is in Grass Climate Zone 7 (colder). Zoysia will go dormant (brown) earlier in the fall and will not turn more green until late spring in Massachusetts. Cool season grass seed does best in New England. The U Mass Turf Program has information on their website that is very helpful about grass seed selection - http://ag.umass.edu/fact-sheets/home-lawn-garden/selection-grasses - Check it out!

    something about this evokes a peace and cool evening - a dream landscape for a stroll in the sunken walkways that don't interfere with the rolling lawns

    Thanks for your question! This project used many large speciman trees and we did our best to provide the common names for the trees in the photo. The spacing is difficult to determine, but at the time of planting many of the evergreen trees were in the 18' to 20' height range. Here is the list: Douglas Fir, Golden Hinoki Cypress, Blue Atlas Cedar, Norway Spruce, Weeping Alaska Cedar, Amelanchier Autumn Brilliance, Green Mountain Sugar Maple.

    I hope you find this helpful!

Psychology professors Stephen and Rachel Kaplan at the University of Michigan would go on to pioneer research that shows how environments can have restorative properties. Basically, when people look at nature, it helps restock mental energy. “Think of energy in your brain as one big pot of stuff churning around like lava,” says Sally Augustin, an applied environmental psychologist and current president of Division 34 of the American Psychology Association. For years, she has studied human’s experience with homes, workplaces and hospitals. “When doing knowledge work you deplete your mental resources, whether it’s your job or playing chess. When mental stocks come down, we get to be irritable, cognitive performance and social performance declines, and we don’t get along well with others.”
