A significant element of nature’s evolution, we as humans, are meant to live amidst natural surroundings. With more urban spaces pressing forward, we are losing touch of natural greenery and landscapes. Which is why a majority of city dwellers are seeking homes that are surrounded by abundant greenery.
Green spaces not just benefit our environment, but also help in improving our health for a long term. There’s a huge shift in the overall quality of life once you start living close to green spaces. Here are a few incredible benefits that you must know:
Improved air quality:Trees, shrubs and turf remove smoke, dust and other pollutants from the air. According to a report by the Evergreen project (https://projectevergreen.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/EnvironmentalBenefitsofGreenSpace.pdf), one tree can annually remove around 12 kg of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. A study has shown that one acre of trees can remove 13 tons of particles and gases annually.
Cooler temperature during summers:Greenery brings a noticeable regulation in the adverse effects of climate. With the improvement in air quality, the warming effects on cemented roads ease down thus recharging groundwater supplies. Hence, even during summers, the temperature won’t go beyond the bearable limit.
Improved water quality:Proper landscaping reduces water runoffs and keeps away any soil pollutants out of our waterways, thus improving the quality of water.
Health benefits:Green areas promote a healthier lifestyle by providing a pleasant environment. This encourages people to get more involved in physical activities like walking, cycling and more. Spending time in green spaces also lowers stress and positively impacts blood pressure.
Keeps you socially active:Urban green spaces offer areas to relax and socialise promoting higher levels of social activity and stronger neighbourhood relationships. This particularly helps in maintaining a high-quality life for elderly people.
The aforementioned benefits are just a glance into an even bigger picture of having greenery in the surroundings. For any homebuyer, green spaces in the surrounding must be one of the most important prerequisites. If you are looking for one such home, then take a look at Green Vista. This magnificent development is meticulously planned by one of Mumbai’s renowned Vaibhavlaxmi Builders and Developers.
