Outdoor Lighting for the Garden Supports Well-being During the Winter
For more than forty years, Altons Garden Centre in Essex have been supplying families and their gardens with all sorts of plants, accessories and advice. But this year, at a time traditionally reserved for gardeners taking on board tips about how to prepare the garden for next spring, Altons are encouraging customers not to be too hasty in abandoning their gardens, but finding ways to enjoy them for longer. Apart from the cold, the biggest reason people give up on using their outdoor space is a lack of light but to their detriment. Altons hopes to remedy that by offering a comprehensive range of lighting selected to suit any budget. As the largest garden centre in Essex, Altons range is impressive and it is not only customers in the southeast who can benefit from their stock and expertise, customers anywhere in the UK can now get advice online, and place an order with Altons online garden centre.
A spokesperson for Altons said, “A lot of people underestimate how important it is to spend time outdoors. Giving up on the garden for the winter isn’t necessary now that there are so many lighting options to make time in the garden safe and enjoyable. Now is the time for people to treat the garden to a few new accessories so they can enjoy it for longer.”
Altons may have a point. According to research by Swallownest Court, a rehabilitation centre in Rotherham, having access to a garden is paramount for a feeling of wellbeing. They found that for their patients, tending a garden, being responsible for it and looking after it “makes them feel less lonely” and more connected to the outside world. Installing suitable garden lighting ensures that, particularly for customers who use gardening as a form of therapy, or indeed a space to socialise with family and friends, people can reap the rewards of their gardens for longer.
