Finding the Hidden Gems

Maintaining a healthy yard has several benefits and Weed Man is happy to help keep lawns looking (and feeling) their best. Exploring the outdoors is also extremely beneficial – not only for adults, but even more so for children. By instilling a love for the environment at an early age, kids will grow up with a sense of appreciation for the world we live in, and hopefully, pass that quality along to their friends and future children.
 
Encourage your little ones to develop a genuine love for nature and being outdoors and build a knowledge and understanding of the environment, ecosystems and the benefits of maintaining and enjoying a healthy green space – all things kids lack nowadays. Explore local green spaces and bring out the best in your kids and your family! Here’s why:
 
Supports Creativity: Allowing children to explore the outdoors enhances their ability to engage in more inventive forms of play. In addition to that, studies show that schools and daycares that utilize nature-based teaching scenarios improves academic performance, not only in science-based classes, but other subjects as well.  
 
Improves Health: As expected, kids who play outdoors regularly, as opposed to sitting in front of the television or playing video games, are more physically active and aware of their nutrition choices, which is something society is currently lacking. Having a hard time convincing your kids to eat their veggies? Consider growing your own backyard crops to get them excited about creating healthier eating habits!
 
Reduces Stress: Did you know? Studies illustrate that hospital patients whose rooms overlook landscapes recover faster and require less pain medication than those lying in a sterile urban environment. Yearly cycles of nature produce changes in the color of lawns, which are among the first areas to green up in the spring. This brings a lift to human spirits and therefore reduces stress – in children and adults.
 
Improves Focus: Being around nature can greatly increase children’s ability to concentrate, improving their grades in school and overall sociability. In fact, even the sight of outdoor green spaces can help!
 
Encouraging your family to explore local green spaces is not only beneficial to your kids’ overall cognitive and physical health, it can also be fun! Create lasting memories and introduce your children to the natural world today. You won’t regret it!
