Making More Of Your Outdoors

Does everyone love the great outdoors as much as I do? Fresh air, the buzz of nature, bird songs, sun rays, flower essences, blue sky, green grass, solitude and uniting with all living creatures, it’s easy to see why people chose the hobby of Gardening (even if it takes a lot of physical labor).

In fact, some, prioritize this activity more than the household chores.  Here are some easier ways to get more out of your outdoors this upcoming season.

A Place To Work: For a long time, I had no place to store my garden materials or tools and had to spend time running back and forth from the garden to the house. There are so many options for garden maintenance, but have you ever thought of Garden log cabins? Not only that they can help you organize your items, they can also serve as an excellent office space, extra room, or just a quiet personal place to be. Interesting enough, I thought of using it as an outdoor meditation practice, especially if the weather does not cooperate. They could be wired up with electricity, as well.

A Place For Friends: All work and no play will make the garden feel like a chore at times. Always a nice option is to create an area to spend time with friends in your deck, backyard or lanai with BBQs, furniture (which I still need to invest in), and possibly patio heaters. There are second-hand furniture stores that offer outdoor choices that are much more reasonably priced. Our friends proudly display their pool furniture that was a fraction of cost and completely functional.

A Place To Relax: Finally, the solitude that gardening provides for me, in particular, is an invaluable asset. Whenever I need to clear my brains or simply be left alone from household demands or demands of the household family members, aka, kids (smiling here), I walk outside into the garden. Maintaining a hobby in a home with children, dogs and pressing daily life sometimes feels impossible. If you have an outside office, garden or a shed,  you could move all of your hobby gear where it will be left alone. This will give you access to your passion, while also keeping it safe.

Hopefully, with all of this in mind, the set up in the garden will be simplified and the outdoors will provide the healing and relaxing element into your busy lives. 

Until next time, my dear friends.

  1. I do lust after summer houses like this. I definitely enjoy gardening more than housework! I have little fantasies of living in a tiny house like this, with just a few metres square, and making the most of everything I own.

  2. It is wonderful to have a space to store all of your tools and containers for working in the yard and gardens. To also have that entertaining, relaxing space to put the finishing touches on really adds to the pure enjoyment of outdoor activities. Such an inspiring post!

      1. I’m currently trying to write one in which the main protagonist is a party planner so she’ll need some of those wonderful tips you’ve been dishing out. I don’t want to go on and on about my writing, because I’m certain that I’ll eventually bore you, but thanks for asking. 😄

  3. I’m converting one of our yard sheds into a cat/garden shed. No chemicals, only garden tools in the summer. As for and outdoor office, we do have a log cabin just north of the garden space. I love your idea of using it as an outdoor office or a place to entertain guests. It would work marvellous.

    Peace in your garden environment!

    1. You brought to me to happy tears, Diana. I just don’t know how to express my gratitude to you and how you made me feel today and every single day being there as a warm, generous, giving friend. I am so reblogging your work to my own post. Haha. Off to share your friendship with my family, they already know the you -the supportive friend exists, but now will buzz their ears off :))) And, Diana. Thank G-d you I met you here.
