From manicured lawns to babbling brooks, residents are looking for more greenery in their homes than ever before! While it may be difficult to make changes to the common areas of your gated community, here are a few ways you can steal moments of tranquillity within the comfort of your home.
A kitchen garden
Why buy spices from the store when you can grow your own? If you are in the mood to whip up some delectable pasta, you can pluck fresh rosemary, thyme or basil from your herb garden. Enhance the flavours of Indian cooking with homegrown coriander or unwind your day with lemongrass tea. A kitchen garden is a great way to hone your green thumb – not to mention, the added benefit of having effortless access to fresh spices and vegetables.
If you don’t have a water body near your house, you can create your own with a serene water fountain. The best part? Almost any household ornament can be converted into a fountain with these simple steps. Whether it is a tabletop fountain or a garden fountain, it lends character to your room and can be used as a focal point in your decor.
A compost pit
While your building or homeowner’s association may have a recycling program, there is nothing like the satisfaction of having your waste work for you. It can aid your thriving garden and it is remarkably simple to make. This is an eco-friendly way to dispose of vegetable and fruit scraps and leftover food, and use it to enrich the soil.
Pencil in a little time every day to spend outdoors. Whether it is a cup of coffee on your balcony every morning or a stroll around the park in the evening, a daily dose of Vitamin D has health benefits like enhancing your mood, lowering blood pressure and reducing depression. Whenever possible, opt for natural lighting over artificial lights. It will cut down on your electricity bill and decrease your carbon footprint.
