year ago

It’s been shown by research that gardening can have a positive effect on our mental and physical health. But plants and green spaces are also a great way to revamp your home, especially if you own a backyard, a front lawn, or even a nice balcony. People on Reddit know this firsthand and are often eager to display the results of their time and patience.

Bright Side rounded up several before-and-after photos that perfectly showcase what some beautiful nature can do for your home’s aesthetic.

1. “This was just a pile of dirt when we moved here 2 years ago.”

2. “My little cactus patch has turned out alright.”

3. “What a difference one year makes!”

4. “I powerwashed then painted the existing floor. The plants include camelias, golden cane palms, azelias, etc.”

5. “A year ago vs this morning”

6. “A 2-year update on my super tiny walled garden. It’s my favorite ‘room’ in the apartment. I feel so lucky.”
