Outdoor living spaces encourage us to live healthier and happier lives.

There is something special about having a piece of land to call your own; it is your own bit of nature and peace. When people had to learn to work from home during the pandemic, the quality of their yards and homes became much more vital. While a comfortable home is important to one’s well being, green spaces may be even more so. Check out these surprising benefits of outdoor living spaces below! 

Mental Health Benefits of Outdoor Living Spaces

It is proven that outdoors and nature improve our mental health. In fact, just gazing at a picture of a landscape can improve our sense of well being. Many scientific studies have revealed that spending time in nature can improve cognitive abilities and mental, emotional, and social well being. It reduces stress, anxiety, and depression and increases happiness and calmness. It can even help people heal from PTSD, and increase empathy and helpfulness. That is the power of “green spaces.”


Physical Health Benefits of Outdoor Living Spaces

When our internal well being is healthy, our physical health also improves. Researchers also found that spending time in nature can decrease blood pressure, improve sleep, and increase life expectancy. As mentioned earlier, it can also improve cognitive sharpness. When we relax in nature, it has a direct, positive effect on our physical health.


Social Health Benefits of Outdoor Living Spaces

Humans are social creatures. For most of us, we need people. Outdoor living spaces make it possible to enjoy nature and other people at the same time. It is a place where you can eat and drink with family and friends, play games, sit around the campfire, or take a dip in a hot tub or swimming pool. It can also just be a place to sit, talk, and take in the view. Backyard landscaping can change everything about how you enjoy the great outdoors and socialize. The Landscape Design Center has had many clients mention their increase in socialization after completing a backyard project. They met and hung out with neighbors they had been living next to for 20 years!
