Outdoor office

Working from home is here to stay, but why not work outside instead of at your desk? A workplace in nature! Outside, surrounded by flowers and plants. Amazing, right? An outdoor office doesn't just make you more productive, it's also a lot healthier than working indoors all day. Here's how to make a perfect outdoor office.



Bathing in green

A large backyard is an unprecedented luxury. If you're lucky enough to have one, naturally your thoughts in summer will stray to having a swimming pool to cool off on hot summer days. But if you have a small garden or a balcony, you still have options! Learn how to make your own natural bath or shower here

Yes, summer has arrived! When you make sure that you are surrounded by wonderfully fragrant plants, your house is just as good as a wonderful holiday destination. Want to know which plants are best to choose? Read on here.
