Say goodbye to the sunglasses and high-five your Mackintosh, the rainy season is now well and truly upon us. The kids still need their daily dose of fresh air, though, and the dog still needs a snaffle about the woods. All this can result in mud-caked wellington boots and a dirty, wet dog traipsing through the house, ruining whatever semblance of cleanliness you left behind. Of course, you can’t just cancel all outings until summer 2019! Research shows that nature walks lower blood pressure, reduce stress and improve mood. So, what can you to do ensure a well-exercised and happy family, without the muddy aftermath?
Protecting plants from weather variations is usually possible, though, with a bit of know-how.
