My Radio Show that broadcast on Saturday, May 12th, was a lively interview with Landscape Architect Peter Alexander.

Americans have been lied to. With every misleading TV advertisement that encourages the unsuspecting Consumer to apply chemical fertilizers and chemicals onto their lawn, gardens… and then having them ultimately wind up in your drinking water and the air you breathe…. poisoning both you and your pets [and all life on Earth]… the scope of the damage this has to the immune and nervous system to every living being on Earth is beyond what most of us can comprehend.

Your life literally depends upon how much you know, and how motivated you are to take action to save the circle of life that is crucial to your wellbeing.

There is nothing better and certainly nothing more healing than God’s Garden. I love sitting outside, eating Al Fresco, enjoying the butterflies visiting each flower and listening to the birds chirp and a rambling brook…. totally soothing to my senses and reminds me of this AWESOME gift of Life.

One of the world’s worst Pesticides that kills Aquatic life, poisons people, kills our pollinating Bees, causes birth defects and other horrible dis-eases… is produced by possibly the most evil conglomerate on Earth: Monsanto.

Why and How this company has been able to undermine every nook and cranny of the EPA, USDA, Congress, and even local municipalities is inexcusable. Their toxic Genetically Modified Organisms [GMO’s], pesticides, herbicides, dangerous brands like “Round Up” and other killers are nothing short of Satanic. They kill and destroy.

Nothing is more concerning for the future of our Environment than these chemical weapons of mass destruction that have been re-packaged into Consumer and Agricultural products.

How to have a Natural Garden: Use Compost; make your own Compost with kitchen scraps; hire a Natural Gardener that uses Organic Gardening Techniques; add your firewood ash to compost and spread onto garden, lawn, etc…. and make sure you include your coffee grinds, too!

Borax is a natural way to rid your property and home of pests. Also, if you have Carpenter Ants, use Borax mixed with Southern ‘Grits’ that they tend to like to eat, but will die once it expands when they eat it.

Mice and other Vermin hate the smell of Peppermint. Get a spray bottle, add some cheap Vodka, water and the Essential Oil of Peppermint. Spray around perimeter of home and even use inside your home as a natural cleaning spray! You will love it.

Diatomaceous Earth is a great way to keep pests away but is safe for pets and people and also for good insects like Bees, Butterflies, and mammals like Birds and Squirrels.


You can have a beautiful, no maintenance landscape if you think full-circle and insist upon indigenous plants, trees, grasses, flowers that will require very little maintenance and have a natural immunity to any pestilence as they have had millions of years to evolve, unlike “imported” or non-regional plant species.

If you love to Garden and are growing your own produce, you might be interested in the “Companion Planting” practice for natural pest control.

Here are some helpful suggestions:

Protect your Carrots by planting them with Leeks to repel both Carrot and Onion Flies.

Plant Radishes and Kohlrabi with Lettuce to repel Earth Flies that don’t like the smell of Lettuce.

God Aphids? Plant Nasturiums around Broccoli and bunches of Chives among Sunflowers and tomatoes to discourage infestations.

Ladybugs= God’s gift to Gardeners! A natural enemy to Aphids.

Asparagus and Tomatoes complement one another. Place one row of Asparagus between 2 rows of tomato plants.

Daffodils repel mice.

Plant Yarrow as a Boarder for an herb garden as it encourages the growth of essential oils in herbs.

Onions repel Rabbits and can be inter-planted with Peas, Beans, Lettuce and Cabbage.

Cool. You can have the most healthy life and bring to life all of the many beneficial insects, mammals and herbs around you NATURALLY.

Autumn leaves are like pure Gold for your Garden and entire landscape! Why on earth some Municipalities pay big money to have them shipped out of town is ludicrous.

These leaves nourish the tree’s roots in the Winter and also act as a magnificent mulch for your garden, vegetables, and lawn as it greatly enriches the minerals within the soil.

So, if you are in a part of the world where the gorgeous Autumn leaves fall, DO NOT allow a polluting “leaf blower” to blow them into plastic bags and away from your landscape!

Instead, you can lay them out on the lawn and mow over them, and combine them with Organic compost and nourish your shrubs, trees, gardens, lawn… every aspect of the perfect circle that God gave to us is a true bounty of life.

OR, if you wish, let the leaves fall under the tree and leave it be. Your tree will be stronger throughout the Winter storms as it is literally fed at its roots with the incredible Autumn leaves it blessed you with.

So exciting to be supernatural!

Sustainable, Energy Saving Landscapes

My conversation this week with Landscape Architect, Sue Reed, shed some light on how to create aesthetically beautiful, energy saving gardens, yards, parks, and other spaces that need to be reclaimed for sustainable living.

The remarkable journey this environmentally conscious design takes us on is one where you realize that your personal landscape choices CAN make a huge difference in making the world “Green” rather than toxic.


1.) Choose Native Plants. This creates a place for butterflies, bees, and birds and other wildlife to live and you will be energy-wise since you won’t need to water your garden/yard so much.
2.) Clover is a natural lawn cover that does not need to be mowed, ever. It also doesn’t need extra watering.
3.) Lighting should be LED and should be on a motion detector. Light pollution is a huge environmental issue and kills millions of migrating birds every year. A green or blue light is better than a yellow light, since migrating birds are not attracted to these colors in landscape/building/garden lighting. Also, use solar lighting where applicable.
4.)Get Electric Lawn Mowers/Leaf Blowers/Weeders, etc. This is a very QUIET option and it is certainly significantly more friendly to our ecology. America alone uses over 1 Billion gallons of gasoline PER YEAR on mowing lawns.

These are just a few tips that Sue Reed gave to the Conscious Lifestyles listeners.


Sue’s book, “Energy-Wise Landscape Design” is available now online and at any book retailer.

Check out Sue’s blog, Energy Wise Landscape and start your own Oasis that is naturally alive, beautiful, honorable, clean, environmentally sensitive, and a place to gather and truly celebrate life.
