Abstract

A house with a beautiful yard will not only increase the property value but also help the owner fit into a local community (Robbins, Polderman, & Birkenholtz, 2001), build connections with neighbors, and demonstrate personal values (Nassauer, 1988). Moreover, gardening could benefit people of different ages. Gardening practice teaches children patience, establishes a moral code, enhances a sense of responsibility, develops the love of nature and improves social cohesion (Montessori, 1964).

Keywords: product development, Gardening, glove, protection
