One thing that many more people have started to enjoy this year is their garden. With not as much to enjoy in terms of holidays, nights out and large gatherings, for many people a slower pace of life and more time to reflect means that they have found a new love for their gardens. Whether an avid gardener who was always keen to spend more time in the garden or someone with no gardening experience, many people have started to make the most of their gardens.
Spending time in the garden is a great way to help with relaxation and mental health difficulties that people may have such as anxiety so it is a great way to be spending time with all that is going on in the world at the moment. With winter coming up, many people may be worrying that they may not be able to spend as much time enjoying their gardens and getting the fresh air and exercise as well that is so important for physical health and wellbeing.
In fact, there are lots of ways that you can make the most of your garden during these cooler months – here are a few ways to still spend time on your garden during the winter…
Get a Garden Room – Garden rooms are really becoming popular. They are a great way to enjoy the garden whilst being protected from the elements. Some are huge and can have things like a bar or a games room, some are more compact.
There are lots of ways you can make the most of a garden room – why not use it partly as a storage area for keeping garden equipment in, and half with some seating and large glass window for relaxing and looking out over the garden? Somewhere like Rackzone, a shelving Ireland based company will be able to help you with good storage solutions for your area.
Create a Winter Wonderland – One of the advantages to having these longer darker nights is the fact that we can enjoy lighting up our gardens! Create a festive display to bring a smile on the dark winter nights by adding solar lighting to your garden. Pretty string fairy lights and solar water features are a great way to make your garden look magical and relaxing.
Update your Garden Furniture – Because you probably won’t be using your garden furniture to sit out in the sun until next spring, now is the ideal time to update yours. A coat of paint can completely change your garden furniture and breathe life into old and past its best-looking woodwork. It can really modernise the look of your garden and when the spring comes you will also have the benefit of being able to enjoy new furniture!
