The benefits of a little greenery are endless and include amongst other things, improved health, happiness, and intellect. If you’re fortunate enough to have a backyard garden or live in close proximity to a park, now is the time to start spending more of your days outside. Even a small rooftop garden or balcony planter can work wonders for relieving stress and even improving intellect! And if you happen to live in a drought-prone area, don’t forget you still have plenty of options for plant life, so forgo the lawn and check out some inspiration for drought-friendly plants.

Comments Off on earth day countdown: go go guerrilla

Here at Green is Sexy we’re on the prowl for the best ways to celebrate upcoming Earth Day.  If you’re seeking out a fun, adventurous and covert operation… try gardening!  Guerrilla gardeners usually strike at night and anyone can join this underground society – all you need are some seeds, plants or baby trees, a patch of land and a little stealth.  Peruse your neighbourhood for a public spot that could use a little love and then make your move.  Choose plants that are hearty, native to your area and drought resistant since they’re going to be fending mostly for themselves.  You can even make your own balls of seeds and soil that you can chuck into hard to reach places that desperately need a little sprucing up.
