Need of Planters

We’ll start with the most obvious reason why cultivating plants is so important: We cannot eat, drink, or breathe without them around. No plants = no life and that can’t be healthy! .Daily gardening chores like watering, weeding, trellising, mulching, and harvesting are great ways to augment an exercise regimen.

Vegetable gardening gives us positive feelings of self-sufficiency. Knowing we have fresh homegrown produce can ease our concerns about providing for our friends and families should something cripple the infrastructure we rely on so heavily.

A home garden gives you instant access to fresh produce, so that you're not forced to visit the grocery store or farmers market to find it. You save time and money on gasoline rather than driving somewhere else to buy your produce.

Growing your own food gives you complete control over the chemicals and products used during the growing process. Organic produce typically costs more at the grocery store, but you can grow your own organic fruits and vegetables at home by skipping the chemical fertilizers and pesticides

For many homeowners, planting a garden provides enjoyment. Watching your garden go from bare ground to ripe produce or beautiful plants offers a sense of satisfaction. Some gardeners find the activity relaxing and stress-relieving, for overall mental health benefits.

No matter our age, gardening is an excellent way to boost physical activity. It can help

  • strengthen bones, muscles, and joints.

  • improve our ability to do daily activities.

  • prevent falls among older adults by improving balance.

  • improve mental health and outlook.

  • decrease lifestyle diseases such as obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, and some cancers.

  • promote longer, healthier lives .

  • Hectic work schedules and a constant use of electronic gadgets often allow us to tune out what’s around us. Gardening connects us to nature and the rhythm of life.

  • more studies point to the benefits of gardening to help people in a range of stressful health situations, including.

  • reduction of physical pain.

  • rehabilitation or recovery from surgery or other medical procedures.

  • coping with physically challenging circumstances.

  • learning to live with chronic conditions.

  • Get improved mental health

    A review of studies indicates the importance nature plays on our mental well-being. According to the researcher, nature is “an effective and affordable way” to help prevent mental disorders such as depression. Several studies have also looked at gardening for dementia patients and the elderly. Results on gardening, or horticultural therapy, for people with dementia were generally positive and included better sleep patterns, well-being, and functioning.

    Get smart

    While gardening requires working with our hands, it also gives our brains a workout. Planning the layout of the garden, researching different plants that thrive in various climates and soils, and learning gardening techniques encourage us to think through problems, devise solutions, and be creative. Studies indicate students who participate in school gardening score significantly higher on standardized science achievement tests, possibly because they’re learning in a hands-on environment that is active and engaging.
