Spending Time in Garden Improves Health and Well-being

A new study, performed by researchers from the University of Exeter, UK, suggests that people that have an opportunity to spend time and work in a private garden have better health and well-being compared to people without a garden.Spending Time in Garden Improves Health and Well-being

For the study, a team of scientists took data from the Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment survey, which included a representative sample of around 8,000 participants from England. The analysis of received data showed that people who both relaxed in their garden and did some gardening had improved health and well-being compared with those who did not use the space.

Project lead Dr. Rebecca Lovell says: “Gardens are a crucial way for people to access and experience the natural environment. Our new evidence highlights that gardens may have a role as a public health resource and that we need to ensure that their benefit is available equally.”
