Outdoor spaces help you enjoy your home while relaxing and disconnecting from your every day life. We will show you what are the benefits of having a patio garden.
1. Benefits to your Health
Who doesn’t enjoy going outside for a bit and enjoying a litte sun and the smell of flowers and plants? Well, having an outdoor space such as a patio garden is pretty similar except you have to put a little work into it. Creating a patio garden is requires a lot of patience and dedication. But the benefits that it brings for your health makes it worth it.
Inhaling brings oxygen into the body, exhaling releases carbon dioxide. During photosynthesis, plants do the opposite, of sorts: They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, making plants and people great partners when it comes to gasses. Plants help to increase oxygen levels, and our bodies appreciate that.
Simply being in your garden patio and being around plants and nature improves concentration, memory and productivity. Being “under the influence of plants” can increase memory retention up to 20 percent, according to a University of Michigan study. It also reduces stress and tension in your body.
2. Benefits to your Property Value
Landscaping can add tens of thousands of dollars to the value of your property. In fact, it is one of the few home improvements you can make that not only adds value immediately, but also increases in value as the years go by.
Having a professional patio design will help enhance your property value by 10%. If you are planning to sell your house, remember that first impressions count, and when a buyer sees your home for the first time, the care of the landscaping is one of the first indicators of how well the home has been cared for.
3. Benefits to the Environment
Carbon dioxide is what we expel when we breathe- it is a waste product by all means, and plants help recycle it into something we need to survive! They also remove any chemicals and bacterias that may be floating around in the air, providing an overall healthier environment to be within.
It’s no secret that wildlife is drawn to greener spaces. Your plants provide protection from predators and weather and even give space for them to complete their lifecycles.
