The concept of sustainability has become a hot topic in recent years. More and more people are turning to sustainable practices as a way of not only cutting their own costs but also doing their part to help preserve and protect our planet. The idea of sustainability encompasses several things that you can do right in your own yard. While it may not seem like much, every time we take sustainable action, we slowly improve the environment and, together, can make a difference to our planet.
How Can I Practice Sustainable Gardening?
Sustainable landscape management goes beyond simply planting organic vegetables or starting an herb garden. It touches on every aspect of managing and maintaining your yard, including:
Good, sustainable landscape practices begin with a professional design that takes advantage of your yard’s natural assets. By pinpointing locations of the sun during the day, you can plant to maximize the amount of light your plants receive. By planning your watering and drainage uses carefully, you can minimize the amount of water your yard needs to stay healthy. By using the right products, such as sustainable plants and long-lasting hardscape choices, you can create a healthy, happy yard that requires less time and effort for you to maintain.
One of the most obvious ways you can contribute to the planet’s health is by sustainable, responsible use of water. While your yard will require watering from time to time, you can minimize the amount of water you use by carefully planning how you will plant and what water features you will incorporate into your design. Many of today’s water features are sustainable in that they recycle the water they use for a long period of time rather than requiring a regular flow of water, and many plants that are drought-tolerant are making their way into our landscapes as people search for water-sparing ideas for their yards. You can take advantage of both of these trends by choosing the right plants and water features to support your sustainable garden.
Sunlight is one of our greatest gifts, and its power can be harnessed and put to good use in your sustainable yard. Not only can you choose to plant in areas where your garden will benefit most from natural sunlight, but you can also employ solar-powered lighting and other features so that you do not have to use electricity to manage parts of your landscape design. Using solar power simply makes sense if your goal is to harness as much of nature’s own free energy as possible and cut down on your use of fossil-fuel-driven power.

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
