Covid-19 and the Mental Landscape


When facing something as daunting as a global pandemic, certain things become undeniably clear. One such thing is when nationwide lockdowns restrict people to their houses, the health of their home spaces becomes particularly important. In the time of Covid-19, this is especially true when it comes to our mental wellbeing. Sadly, researchers have already identified conditions such as Nature-Deficit Disorder, which highlights the negative consequences of living in spaces with unmaintained landscapes. Fortunately, these spaces can be changed for the better with relative ease.

In this sense, looking after our trees, gardens, and even our swimming pools can make all the difference when it comes to our day-to-day lives. In South Africa, many individuals have picked up their gloves and garden forks to maintain their mental health. Inspired by this movement, Stellenbosch Garden and Pool will take care of those who do not have the energy, time, or capability to tend to their gardens. This also means that this service can act as a therapeutic experience for the client. Looking after your physical landscape is a great way to maintain your mental landscape, because it allows for more people to have a place of solace, beauty and recreation to come home to.
