The Many Benefits of Organic Planting

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 13 October , 2021

Organic gardens are all the rage and for a very good reason!  Organic planting can provide you with healthy, beautiful, vibrant plants without harming the environment with pesticides, chemicals, or overuse of water resources.  With a good organic gardening plan, you can easily turn your yard into an environmentally friendly retreat!

What Is Organic Gardening?

Organic gardening is the practice of using fertilizers, soils, watering techniques, seeds, and plants that are not toxic or unhealthy.  Instead, organic gardening focuses on pesticide-free methods that utilize natural means to eradicate insects and other pests.  It also uses environmentally-friendly practices to limit the use of resources, such as drip irrigation instead of broadcast sprinklers.  Finally, organic gardening uses plants, seeds, and soils that have never been in contact with any pesticides or herbicides to ensure that plants and produce are free of any chemicals.

Why Organic is Better

Organic gardening is better for the environment and for individuals for several reasons:

  • Organic gardening is healthier for the environment. Because organic gardening uses no pesticides, herbicides, or harmful chemicals, it is much better for the soil, water, and air.  No chemicals leach into the soil profile; no toxic substances enter the groundwater.  Additionally, organic gardening allows the removal of pests in the most beneficial way possible:  either through the introduction of helpful species that eat pests but do not harm the ecosystem or through non-toxic chemical or physical methods.  All of this means that the environment remains healthier and cleaner than with traditional pesticide or herbicide use.
  • Organic gardening produces healthier products. The plants grown through organic means have been shown to be healthier and better for consumers than plants treated with harmful chemicals.  Organic produce offers all the health benefits of fruits and vegetables without the addition of chemicals that can be harmful to the human body.  In addition, organic plants are produced without genetically modified seeds, meaning that the plants do not introduce any possibly harmful genetic material into the environment.
  • Organic gardening conserves natural resources. Because organic gardening focuses on protecting the environment, methods such as choosing drought-friendly plant varieties are given priority.  This means that organic gardens use less water and still produce beautiful plants.  Conserving resources such as water makes the planet healthier.  With the introduction of water-saving methods, organic gardens can get the water they need without the waste associated with other forms of gardening.

    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
