The garden gives many of us an additional room to spend time in. Even the smallest courtyard can be a source of motivation to go outdoors. In fact, checking your plants, watching the birds, or having a cup of coffee out in the fresh air can be an escape. We’ve narrowed down our top 5 reasons to spend more time in your garden and get that landscape project started.
1. Extra ways to entertain the kids
Entertaining young children within the confines of a house, no matter the size, can be a challenge over a long period of time. Outdoor spaces for children that is designed for their needs will pay off for everyone’s enjoyment.
Raised garden beds and vegie patches that children can tend or paved spaces for hand ball and basketball all are fabulous allocated spaces. You may prefer secret gardens with elves and goblins connected with winding paths but what-ever you decide Aussietecture has the stone choice for you.
2. It’s a great way to stay physically healthy
As well as boosting your mental health, being outdoors is great for physical wellbeing. Gardening is a great calorie burner and even if it’s not a weekly thing reaping the health benefits of gardening can be two-fold. The physical exertion and the fruits of that labour is very rewarding. Building raised garden beds, a path or a retaining wall using natural stone will burn calories and leave you with a sense of accomplishment. Then grow some fruit and veg from scraps!
3. Creating a space that will make you happier
The garden, no matter how small, is an escape. Numerous scientific studies on eco-therapy extoll the benefits to mental health. Creating relaxing calm environments that lift mood and calm the senses is a goal with long term benefits. Planning your garden project and creating that haven offers an escape at home.
Retaining walls, pathways or raised garden beds add depth and contrast for your landscape. Covid has at least allowed us to be home more and there are opportunities for us to get those around the house jobs done.
4. You can have a positive impact on the environment
Using natural stones for paths, walls or features has a net zero impact to your space. A well-planned garden is complemented by hard surface natural stone that is carbon neutral. Your out-door project will bring you great joy, invite wildlife to come and providing pleasure during difficult times.
