Over the course of this novel coronavirus pandemic, people have faithfully hunkered down for the time being. As awareness of the risks and consequences of infection rose, people have also become more cautious. However, that does not defeat the entrepreneurial spirit of Americans, as everyone across the country is finding ways to stay active and keep busy. If you’re looking for outdoor home improvement project ideas, you’ve come to the right place.
Benefits of Spending Time Outdoors
It is almost a no-brainer why it is healthy to spend time outdoors, even in the age of the virus. Parks, neighborhood sidewalks, and people’s own lawns are not “canceled.” As the weather warms, the fresh air can give people a health boost for immunity, blood pressure, and more. Sunshine kills viruses and bacteria and increases one’s Vitamin D level. Spending time amid the green grass, flowers, trees, and wildlife proves to help one’s mood as well.
Ways People Are Spending Time Outdoors
From mid-March through now, people continue to take advantage of the fair weather. At the beginning of the lockdown, many flocked to the parks to hike and have a change of scenery. With few places to go, people looked to the outdoors. In Maryland, you have likely seen neighbors biking, walking, or jogging.
Meanwhile, hardware store owners saw an unintended surge in people at their buildings. The quarantined populus sought how they could stay busy, and one of those ways was to pursue all the home improvement projects of their dreams.
Outdoor Home Improvement Project Ideas
Around the house, there are plenty of ways to keep busy and active. While some are focusing on different rooms in the house, some are turning to their outdoor living spaces. Some are planting flowers, some a vegetable garden, and others are working on outdoor furniture or hardscaping features.
In Gambrills, Maryland, Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence is still open and achieving new fences, decks, and other outdoor features for homes in the region. If you need a professional to help with your project, or if you’re looking for some DIY materials, MAD Fence is your go-to place.
Safety with Home Improvement Projects
Even though they are outdoors, home improvement projects require safe distancing too. MAD Fence is following safe procedures in not entering clients’ homes and keeping 6 feet away. They also have a free, remote estimating service to limit in-person contact further during this time.
