There’s definitely something glorious about being able to come downstairs of a morning and look out of the patio doors onto an expanse of garden. It doesn’t have to be vast acres – in fact, the big gardens are more difficult to see anyway. Just that first sight of green grass with perhaps some shrubs in the borders ad i the lat winter, little snowdrops and crocus bobbing tentatively between the showers! One of the main benefits of having a really good patio door system is that it reminds us of the treasures we behold beyond. The mental stimulus and wellbeing gained from gardening cannot be underestimated. The fresh air definitely blows away cobwebs and so long as you wrap up with jacket, hat, scarf and gloves, there’s no reason why anyone shouldn’t get looking in close up detail of what forms that wonderous view from the patio door. Planning ahead for the summer colour is possible by just sitting next to the door without even going out of course – just making the most of the view is heartening.
