There are endless ways that you can add a garden to your living spaces, no matter how small it may be! Plus creative gardening can be even more fun, but no matter if you are an expert gardener or just trying it out for the first time, you can do this!
The most imperative element you will need for a garden is sun! Plants need the sun to grow, of course. Don’t forget to protect your skin while gardening with an SPF 30+ sunscreen, like that found in our anti-aging day cream, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Recapture 360 Day +IR Defense.
Then you should try to utilize the space you have by choosing what to grow in accordance to what you love to eat. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen you might want to consider an herb garden, which is easy to grow and maintain inside or outside. If you have a small plot of land, there are great options including growing vegetable plants in pots or in raised beds, as well as vertical farming.
Vertical Farming has been around for years but it has been catching on more recently as a way of producing healthy food with less water in contained areas. Even if you only have a wall that gets sun throughout the day, you can build a garden by attaching small boxes or pots to it with various plants and vegetables. And if you are a DIY kind of person, there are endless options for turning even your limited space into an awesome garden you can be proud of.
With so many of us spending hours a day sitting inside at a computer, getting our hands in the dirt and watching something grow gives us tangible satisfaction! Plus, studies have shown that people who garden have lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol which means it’s good for your physical and mental health. And what could be better than that!
