The benefits of an outdoor living space| Tip of the Week

Over the last couple of years, many of us have spent more time than ever in our yards. When you were giving thanks yesterday, we hope that you spent a moment appreciating all that your landscape does for you. This blog post is a tribute to our outdoor spaces.

Our outdoor spaces can give us:
  • Better health. Gardening is a great method of exercise. It's also good for your mental health, helping boost your mood by interacting with nature. 
  • Better environment. Plants clean the air and provide oxygen. They cool our homes in summer and can protect us and our homes from wind and weather.
  • Better home value. A good landscape raises property values and can help your home sell faster and for a higher price.
  • Better eating. Growing edible plants in your yard makes life more delicious. Fresher food, picked just outside your door, tastes better and has more nutrients for a healthier lifestyle.
One way to "thank" your landscape is to hand-water it this winter so it will come back healthy in the spring, ready to provide its many benefits for another season.
