Now that we are well in the midst of the third lockdown, you will have probably found yourself recently looking for things to do to keep occupied.
After all, having a sense of purpose is vital from a mental health perspective.
A lack of some form of stimuli in our lives can lead to feelings of burnout, over-tiredness, stress, depression and anxiety, while increasing the risk of obesity and several heart-related conditions. So, to combat this effectively, why not give yourself a project to do?
In this blog, we have highlighted a few great ways to give your garden a spruce up without it costing either you or the earth.
With just a little TLC, elbow grease and self-determination, you can quickly give your garden the lift it needs, while also providing you with an area to relax in throughout the period of lockdown.
Whether it be your garden’s walls, the exterior brickwork or the patio slabs, unless you’ve been maintaining your garden on a regular basis, the chances are that it’ll need a wash.
Power washing is a quick, easy and highly effective way of removing loose paint, mould, grime, dust, mud, chewing gum and dirt from surfaces with a high-pressured water spray.
While you may need to wear some waterproofs while you do it, we promise it’ll leave your garden looking almost brand new again once it’s had time to dry.
Alternatively, get in touch with our team here at MC Property Maintenance and trust your power washing to the experts.
Create A Crop Garden
Now that you are spending so much time at home, why not think about growing your own crops?
Climate change is a huge global concern, after all, so the more you can do to live sustainably, the better.
Vegetables like carrots, peas and potatoes, fruits like tomatoes, apples and oranges, and herbs like cress, basil and parsley are all incredibly easy to grow.
Simply tidy up and section off a bit of your garden (preferably where there’s sunlight available), put down some moist soil and plant your seeds. Then, watch in awe as they grow into lovely produce for you and your family to eat.
Another great way to give your garden a new lease of life is by repainting it.
If you have any garden furniture or fences that have seen better days, for example, why not consider sanding it down and giving it a fresh lick of paint?
This will not only provide you with something to do but it’ll also transform your outside space into somewhere a whole lot more enticing to sit and enjoy the day.
