Why Garden?


Gardening is good for your health. Gardening burns calories and reduces your risk of stroke, heart diseases and other life-threatening diseases. Two mature trees can produce sufficient oxygen for a family of four. Also, plants improve indoor air quality by functioning as atmospheric filters.

Gardening is good for the environment. Besides cleaning the air and reducing carbon dioxide, plants support wildlife and biodiversity by providing food and homes for birds, insects, reptiles and mammals.

Gardening is good for your pocket. Strategically planting trees, shrubs and vines around your house can reduce summer cooling and winter heating bills by up to 50%.

Gardening is good for your investment. A well landscaped property can add 20% to the value of your home.

Gardening is good for the soul. Gardening reduces stress levels and boosts your mood. After all, there are few joys in life that beat the sight of a new blossom unfurling or the taste of that first ripe tomato off the vine.
