Domestic gardens and self-reported health: a national population study Brindley et al 2018
- Paul Brindley Anna Jorgensen and Ravi Maheswaran
There is a growing recognition of the health benefits of the natural environment. Whilst domestic gardens account for a significant proportion of greenspace in urban areas, few studies, and no population level studies, have investigated their potential health benefits. With gardens offering immediate interaction with nature on our doorsteps, we hypothesise that garden size will affect general health—with smaller domestic gardens associated with poorer health.
