Benefits of Gardening –
Why it's Good for You and the Planet

Whether you’re an avid gardener and get outside every chance you get, or you’re a complete novice and have no idea where to start and never thought of yourself as green-fingered, it’s high time to discover the many benefits gardening can have on both you and the planet. From mental and physical health benefits of gardening to financial and environmental benefits, gardening really can make a difference.

Trees act as the lungs of our earth, and therefore spending quality time outdoors protecting and nurturing those lungs and mother nature is crucial for the planet, now more than ever in fact. It just so happens that nurturing our own garden or any bit of greenery for that matter, can also improve our overall health and wellbeing. Even if your ‘garden’ is just a small patch of grass or even just a herb garden on your balcony, it still helps to engage your body, stimulate your mind and uplift your spirit.

So what are the benefits of gardening? Check out our infographic below to learn all about what gardening can offer in a mental, physical, financial and environmental capacity. As well as outlining the benefits of gardening, the infographic also shares how you could attract more wildlife into your garden, and how to bring the outside into your home if incorporating a fully-fledged garden just isn’t an option for you right now.

Even if you have been gardening for years, you might still be surprised about some of these benefits! And if you’ve never even picked up a pair of gardening gloves and a spade, then you’ll soon be wondering why you haven’t become a gardener sooner. Gardening is particularly good for seniors (especially if you have more time on your hands), however it really is there for any age to enjoy! So, what are you waiting for?
