Trees and plants have other important environmental qualities too…they help hold our foundations together by working to control soil erosion from occurring with rains and run-off. Gardening is one of the greatest ways to get back to nature and forget about the day to day hassles of our lives. Studies have shown that gardening and planting can help improve our moods and reduce stress. Once your garden is planted you can enjoy it for months to come, so not only are helping yourself relax, you’re also helping everyone around you and the earth itself.
You do not have to have a yard to benefit from trees and plants or to do your part to help the earth. House plants are a great way to clean the air in your home and reduce carbon monoxide dangers for you and your family. You can plant everything from palms, patio trees, and flowers indoors. When planting indoors be sure to give your plants adequate lighting so they can continue to grow strong and healthy. Use a lightweight potting soil that drains well and place by a window or artificial light source so your plants can benefit you the most, and put them in every room of your home.
