Spruce up your outdoors
Having an outdoor space at home is a luxury for many, especially those living in bustling yet densely populated Metro Manila. We may not realize it right away, but having a green breathing space at home, no matter the size, can work wonders for you and your family’s physical and mental health.
Outdoor spaces provide us with a quick “getaway” when life gets extra stressful. If filled with greenery, it serves as a perfect private retreat that allows us to recharge, decompress and refocus—plus, plants have a lot of benefits and gardening is a good way to exercise, too.
If you are fortunate enough to have some outdoor space at home, turn it into a pocket garden or a mini lanai. From outdoor furnishings to garden and plant supplies, Wilcon Depot, the country’s leading home improvement and construction supply retailer, offers all that you need for your very own outdoor space.
It’s beautiful outside. Have the pleasure of having lunches and dinners at home al fresco when the weather permits by converting your outdoor area into a patio. Wilcon has outdoor dining sets to keep your patio well-appointed and always ready, even for outdoor parties with your friends and family.
If your outdoor space is just enough for a small veranda, the one-stop shop also has the perfect space-saving furniture such as foldable picnic tables and easy-to-stow outdoor chairs.
Joke all you want that it is such a “tita” hobby but gardening has a lot of benefits to one’s well-being. Taking care of plants helps calm one’s frazzled nerves, teaches patience, develops strength and brings indescribable joy and a sense of fulfillment.
