Gardening – A Brilliantly Mindful Pastime To Consider
Life can really be quite stressful from time to time, which is why it’s important that you have tried-and-tested ways of winding down, relaxing and getting away from it all, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Taking the time to prioritise self-care is a must if you want to protect your health and sense of wellbeing – and be on top form for your family and friends.
It is at this time of the year that plants and flowers suffer the most from the cold British weather, with winter set to worsen before it gets better.
As we move into the new year there a host of predictions over top gardening trends, but one that has appeared on a few lists is that for growing your own.
It’s no secret that the gardens allotted to new homes have been getting smaller and smaller, with many new-build properties not having a private garden at all.
Homeowners who like to take pride in their garden might want some ideas on how to decorate their outdoor space during the festive season.
It’s winter which means that our gardens can soon become quite messy and unattractive, unless we’re particularly vigilant. But when the weather is terrible, chucking it down with rain and snow, and it’s blowing a gale outside, it’s hardly a surprise that we don’t want to go outside to tend to our flowerbeds.
With the arrival of colder weather you could be forgiven for thinking that you can leave your garden to its own devices for the next few months. In fact, that’s what 52 per cent of Brits do at this time of year, Property Reporter recently revealed, citing a survey by Tiger Sheds.
Many of us are guilty of letting our gardens become overgrown when life gets too busy to sort them out, but one couple must have really allowed their outdoor spaces to get out of control as they have been fined after neighbours complained to the local authority.
If you’re a keen gardener, chances are that you’ll have spent much of the summer keeping your outdoor space in order. From clipping and mowing to watering and weeding, there always seems to be something to do in the garden.
The summer is always a busy time for homeowners wanting to improve their gardens, and recent statistics have shown that just under a quarter landscaped their outdoor space in the three months leading to September.
