Would You Rather Be Gardening or Doing Housework?

Check Out These 10 So You Can Make A Wise Decision!

  • 1. Cafes at garden centers tend to be more relaxing than those at supermarkets.  Let’s be fair, their wares to lend themselves to a more convivial atmosphere.  They can include garden accessories such as fountains, foliage and color
  • 2. Visiting gardens and seeing other peoples outdoor garden decorationscreative garden products gives you the opportunity to wander around someone else’s property.  You can get ideas, experience their lifestyle, and enjoy the day out.  Apart from TV programs, it is very rare to find someone, who is not a friend, who will welcome you into their house.
  • 3.  Gardening is all about taming nature – you can prune plants to go where you want, provide them with conditions they need and they will reward you.  The humans, and to some extent the canines, you share your house with will have their own opinions on life
  • 4. Whilst both gardening and housework have a wide range of tools to make jobs easier to do, garden equipmentgarden equipment tools tend to be much easier to use – when did you last see a trowel or secateurs with a detailed instruction book?
  • 5. Your body sometimes decides that you have done enough work in the garden and it is now time to relax and sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
  • 6. You tend to use more calories gardening than on housework.  Obviously it depends what you are actually doing, but most household chores range between 100-200 calories per hour, while calorie values of 200-400 per hour for general gardening doing heavy work can be much more.
  • 7. Sometimes family members want to help you with the garden design – though canine help isn’t always appreciated!  This rarely happens with housework.
  • 8. With the flower garden, you see when the seasons are coming.  You have the promise of the future.  When you are indoors, the only event that has a major impact is Christmas.
  • 9. In the garden means you are outside and can feel the sun on your back, the rain coming down or the chill of the evening.  Indoors, you can only fix the thermostat for a constant temperature.
  • 10. Weeks and months after you have worked on your garden art, it looks better than when you did the work.  Indoors, the moment when something looks its best is the second after you have finished the work.
