How Lawn Care & Gardening Can Help During COVID-19

With the current world climate, many of us are at home more and a lot of people are finding new hobbies to fill their time and improve their mental health.

One hobby is looking after your outdoor space, whether that be gardening or lawn care. Looking after your yard can have many benefits, both during this uncertain time and in the future.

Health Benefits

We all know that getting outside and into nature can have great benefits for your physical and mental health. In fact, research has found that chemicals plants exude also have a calming effect on people. There’s no better time to make the most of this. Not only can garden care be a stress reliever, it can also help you take life at a slower pace. You’re taking time to think about how best to care for your yard while also taking the time to care for yourself.

House Pride

With many of us spending a lot more time at home, it makes sense to make your home a place you can be proud of! Working on your outdoor space can be part of this but if, in the past, your yard was not a priority, you may need to do a little shopping first. If you don’t have an arsenal of landscaping and lawn maintenance tools, it might be time to build up your toolbox. Visit your nearest garden and lawn maintenance store to see how they can help you transform your outdoor space into something you can be proud of.

A Green Future

Gardening takes time. The right tools can make it a little faster, but gardening is still about the long term. Plant a seed and see it flower in a few months time, plant a sapling and see it grow over the years, aerate your lawn and see it flourish come summer – whatever you’re doing in your garden, you’re likely to see it blooming in a few months time, which is also when the world should be a little more normal!

Where to Start

Not sure what to do first? We may be a little biased, but we believe a gorgeous lawn is the foundation of any good garden. Soil aerators and lawn dethatchers can help create the base by prepping the soil and grass for new growth. Or, if you want to totally transform your space, a walk behind trencher could be the answer. From creating a channel in the ground for dividers or fencing, to creating a trench for diverting power out so you can hang some party lights to celebrate restrictions easing (while social distancing!), a trencher can help with many ideas.

So, if your Work From Home view has been a garden that needs some love or you have more time at home to work on personal projects, why not start by visiting your nearest Weibang Australia dealer to discuss a little lawn care? And tag us in your transformations on social media, we’d love to see how your space has changed during this time!
