Think of your outside space as an extension of your living space!
Studies show that green spaces have an enormously positive effect on our overall health and wellbeing, and especially help us cope with mental distress. Being around plants regularly can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression and help lower cortisol levels (Maas et al, 2009). Cultivating an outdoor space at your home that helps you feel more connected with nature, relax, and unwind can be a wonderful way to self-care! Growing your own clean food, or delicious and fragrant herbs is a great option. Or, if you would rather nurture beautiful blooms and entice pollinators to visit your yard! Watching these small creatures go about their daily routines can be very soothing.
Here at Ecoscape, we are enjoying an abundance of culinary and medicinal herbs grown in our handmade and designed Barden! Our line of plantable furniture enables you to relax and unwind with your favorite plants nearby, where you can smell and touch and enjoy while sipping a cocktail or having dinner outside. Keeping them within reach means they are used and appreciated more often! If you are interested in learning more about our custom handmade plantable furniture, drop us a line! We would love to hear your thoughts.
