Living a greener life in the city

Living a greener life in the city

With every year that passes, there seems to be a trend emerging where people are streamlining their lives by moving closer to their work. Living in the city may mean down-sizing to an apartment, but it also means less of a commute. Think about how that can change your life. Say goodbye to traffic and hello to extra hours in the day, to spend exercising, writing a novel, doing yoga, or sleeping in. Your call.

Moving into the concrete jungle comes with a few challenges of its own... like how to bring some greenery back into your life. There are many different solutions you can try, including vertical planters, green walls, hydroponics for growing vegetable and herbs. There's a myriad of wonderful solutions that are available online like this Vertical Wall Garden from Takealot or this Hydroponic Herb Garden from Yuppiechef, we're seriously spoiled for choice. Alternatively, if you fancy yourself as a handyman or woman, you could even try a DIY solution.

From a visual perspective, it's amazing how artificial grass can transform a small outdoor courtyard or balcony. The beauty of these products is that you can use them both indoors and outdoors, in open spaces, complexes, office spaces and rooftop gardens... wherever you're looking to add some greenery (especially where natural grass struggles to grow). What's more, it's child and pet-friendly, as well as recyclable. 
 
 
 
Let's not forget about how transformative artificial grass can be in the workspace as well. Take for instance this corporate installation, where the designers chose Belgotex's Leisure 25mm which shows how effectively artificial grass can be incorporated into the design of a building. This premium product is exceptionally hard-wearing and can stand up to high traffic areas, as well as the harsh UV rays of South Africa's sun.
