The New Year has arrived, and any whiff of spring is still a long ways off. But just because we’ll be in the grip of winter for a couple more months doesn’t mean you can’t start dreaming about your yard. Where would you like to plant a new shrub or tree, or do you want to completely reimagine your lawn as a low-maintenance, professionally landscaped yard? Is 2019 the year you transform your backyard into a tranquil retreat from the bustle of the city?
Take Control of Your Health.
Some of the biggest health concerns in Canada are mental illnesses. Anxiety and depression are both seemingly becoming more common among all demographics. If your mental health is a priority this year, there are few things better for you than setting time aside each day to be outside and playing in the soil. Exposure to helpful bacteria in dirt have been found to function similarly to antidepressants. Similarly, getting a healthy dose of sunshine will boost your mood, top up your vitamin D levels, and may even help you to sleep better.
Investing in a beautiful yard is a wonderful way to ensure you take a few minutes everyday to poke around in your flower beds or garden. Even just 5 minutes outdoors can make a big difference, though we challenge you to spend 20-30 minutes in your yard each day this spring and summer! Not only will your yard benefit from your careful attention, but you’ll feel the stresses of work fall away as you prune leaves and water your tulips.
Take Pride in Your Home.
There’s no place like home, so it’s important that you love and take pride in your house and yard. When you arrive back home after a long day at work or a stretch of vacation, you should feel stress fall away and comfort slip on like slippers. This is your safe place, your retreat, your oasis. So make it a home you love! Don’t settle for a half dead lawn, work with our team to craft a place you’re proud to show off to your family and friends.
Start Before Spring.
When it comes to reimagining your yard from lawn to beautifully, landscaped masterpiece, it’s a good idea to start in winter! Many Calgarians have a bunch of ideas for their landscaping, and it’ll take some time to work with our professional landscapers to organize your thoughts, prioritize what you want, and draft designs of your future yard. If you start now, your project will be ready to go as soon as spring arrives, and you’ll be able to enjoy your transformed yard all summer long!
