Wellbeing benefits from gardening
As spring approaches, nothing is more gratifying than reconnecting with nature and taking advantage of the physical and mental benefits that the outdoors offers us, such as reduced stress and improved health. Spring rebirth triggers within us a sense of renewal that starts from the very spaces around us. So, if living a greener life is essential to our wellbeing, it is worthwhile looking after and enjoying our home gardens. Each garden is a small ecosystem that needs us to flourish, as well as we need it to live well. But taking care of greenery requires the right equipment: STIGA, Europe’s leading manufacturer and distributor of garden equipment, is an indispensable ally.

Rethinking lawn care
Spring gardening can be perceived by many as hard and dull, causing homeowners to procrastinate, leaving important maintenance needed for a beautiful garden to the side lines and giving up fresh air and quality time in their green spaces. STIGA commits every day to help consumers rethink lawn care as incredibly easy. Ultimately, according to experts, gardening can lead to enhanced wellbeing. Indeed, growing evidence points to the multiple benefits of home gardening related to connection to nature and place attachment, attention restoration, reduced stress and anxiety, improved mood, increased personal gratification.

Green Care
Moreover, despite garden care often being a solitary activity, research also highlights social benefits emerging from opportunities of interaction that occur during social events in home gardens, such as reinforced social ties and sense of belonging to a broader community.  The centrality of nature to individual and collective health and wellbeing is evident in the emerging concept of Green Care, which is essentially an active process intended to promote or improve health and wellbeing, as opposed to a purely passive experience of nature. When it comes to creating wellbeing benefits, the Green Care approach highlights that the natural environment is not simply a backdrop, but its colours, sounds, and fresh air should be actively experienced, yet through garden care.
