Organic Pest Control Protects Your Yard and the Environment
Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 17 November , 2021
There are many good reasons to use organic pest control in your yard and garden, but one of the best reasons is the impact organic has on the environment. Organic gardening increases these benefits as more and more people switch to sustainable practices, so your efforts contribute to the health of the whole planet!
The fact is that most yards need some form of pest control, but those methods do not have to include chemicals or practices that are harmful to the environment. With just a bit of modification, you can enjoy a pest-free yard and, at the same time, support eco-friendly methods that will keep your plants beautiful and healthy.
What Are The Benefits of Organic Gardening?
There are several benefits of organic gardening that every individual, no matter how small his or her “green space,” can enjoy and that contribute to the overall health of the planet.
Many of the environmental changes that we are currently observing could impact our plant over the long term. While it may be easy to ignore these issues now, future generations may not have that luxury. Therefore, it is important to address sustainability in all of our practices. Sustainability in agriculture and landscaping includes taking a proactive approach to choosing drought-tolerant species, conserving water use, and using organic pesticides or introducing non-invasive species for pest control. It also includes choosing plants and methods that will last for years to come, giving you more return for your landscaping investment.
Soil building. Building strong soil is foundational to healthy plants and removes the need for many fertilizers and additives. Ensuring that soil is treated carefully to prevent insect infestation and to provide the right nutrient uptake is a delicate process, but with the right mix of organic material, soil can be enriched without the addition of chemicals. Organic soil amendment is one of the best ways to practice environmentally-friendly gardening not only for today but for years to come.
Water practices. By choosing sustainable, earth-friendly water practices, you are not only being kind to the environment but also helping your local community as well. Drought-tolerant plants conserve water and can be chosen to be beautiful as well as functional. You can also use well-designed watering systems to recycle the water you do put on your plants for maximum benefits. By saving water, you are helping the planet as well as your neighbors to conserve one of our most precious resources.

I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
