  • Growing your own produce can reduce your chances of being exposed to pesticides to a whopping zero percent! You’re in control of what you use to promote the healthy growth of your plants You’ll also cut costs at the grocery store — and who doesn’t like saving money?
  • By choosing what to grow, you can also spice up your landscape’s overall appearance. Growing certain things will not only look great because of their vibrant colors, they’ll add a natural and fresh aroma to the surrounding areas too!
  • Fruit and vegetable waste makes great compost! Composting is a great way to recycle the picked portions that go unused and re-insert them back into the environment. This is not only the ‘green’ option, but it’ll save money on topsoil costs.
  • Someone has to tend to the garden, right? Soak up some Vitamin D and get moving! You’ll increase physical activity when regularly working on your garden, which is a comparable alternative to a walk around the block.

Turning a bit of your landscape into a garden isn’t the hardest thing ever, and the positives certainly outweigh the negatives. All it takes is patience, a water source, and a few feet of space out in the great outdoors!
