What Can A Beautiful Landscape Do For Your Health?

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 31 May , 2023

Everyone wants to have a beautiful home, beginning with an inviting landscape.  But did you know that lovely outdoor spaces do more than just impress the neighbors; they are also a way to improve your own physical, mental, and emotional health?  Studies have shown that creating more functional, relaxed, and balanced spaces, including those outdoors, directly impacts our stress levels by making us calmer and has a therapeutic effect on our overall well-being.  Additionally, time spent outdoors is not only conducive to improving physical health but can also provide a much-needed outlet from a stressful work week.

Some Benefits of a Lovely Landscape

Depending on your level of personal involvement in maintaining your landscape, you can reap many benefits from your yard.  Here are just a few:

  • Increased exercise. Even if you hire a professional landscaping company to do your yard maintenance, you can still work in your own yard to grow herbs or flowers, or simply spend time enjoying your outdoor spaces.  With the addition of a pool, patio, volleyball pit or other recreational area, you can easily double the amount of time you spend moving in an average day!
  • Improved diet. If you do choose organic gardening as part of your landscape plan, you can benefit from an improved diet.  Having fresh organic produce right outside your door encourages you to eat in a more healthy way and even try new recipes you might never have ventured to use before.  With the addition of organic produce to your garden plan, you can add more fruits and vegetables to your daily plate, making you and your family healthier without added expense to your food bill.
  • Time outdoors. We all need a certain amount of time outdoors, soaking up the sun and fresh air.  We breathe more deeply, move more, and make Vitamin D from the sun’s healthy rays.  Of course, you want to use sunblock as needed, but spending time in nature, even if it is just sitting and enjoying your own personal oasis with a good book, is time well spent for your mental and physical health!
  • Reduced stress. Over and over, studies show that excellent ways to reduce stress are to unplug from the daily “grind” and spend time with a slow-paced, enjoyable hobby.  This might be cultivating flowers and watching them grow, setting up a bird feeder and watching the different species that come to eat, or just basking in the quiet while a waterfall trickles nearby as you meditate.  Beautiful outdoor spaces lend themselves to slowing down and appreciating the moments life has to offer!

Whether you garden for recreation, provide food for your family, or just relax in your beautiful outdoor spaces, there are many ways a beautiful landscape can improve your health!

    I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
