We might adore the long, hot summers but one thing around the house generally isn’t so keen - our lawns! Perfectly green, pristine grass lawns are something a lot of gardeners aspire to.

How to Add More Green Space into Your Apartment

More and more people are looking to live in modern luxury apartments, but there are some sacrifices that come with choosing to live in such a stylish home. Now more than ever, while we've been forced to stay at home, people are realising that most apartments surroundings lack greenery, and very limited properties have access to a garden. For this reason, new property developers are now designing apartments with green space in mind because of the wellbeing benefits greenery can provide.

Plush apartment blocks are popular when living in the city as green spaces and urban developments such as parks and woodland can help people to live longer as they provide an excellent space for exercise, relaxation and a place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Studies have shown that green spaces can reduce stress levels and boost mental and physical health.

Not only do green spaces help to lift spirits, but plants, fresh-flowers and succulents can also help to purify the air, making for a much safer and cleaner space. As well as improving air circulation, plants can also provide shade, generating a cooling effect, which helps to lower air temperature, and so greenery is often associated as a way of reducing energy costs in the home.

If you haven't been fortunate enough to grab yourself an apartment that already has a dedicated green space or garden terrace, then you may need to think outside the box and experiment with how you could bring the outdoors in. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to do this, and it doesn't have to take up too much space either. Below are just a few suggestions on how you could add more greenery to your apartment.
