The Impact of Eco-Friendly Planting
Eco-friendly planting can make your home more energy-efficient and provide long-lasting sustainability. The Earth Day movement hopes to inspire the planting of more than one billion trees. Today, you should go outside and plant some seeds! Or, you can call us to do it for you. We can help you create the perfect landscape design and strategically plant trees on your property that will provide your home with shade, reduce your need for air conditioning units, and reduce your overall carbon footprint.
Sustainable Landscaping Strategies
Today is the perfect day to get outside and show your landscaping some appreciation. Are you utilizing your outdoor space to your advantage? While some landscaping elements can call for a decent amount of maintenance, eco-friendly landscaping elements can drastically reduce the need for maintenance while contributing to your property immensely in regards to aesthetic appeal and energy conservation. Whether you want to revamp your current landscaping or start fresh with a green design, there are several sustainable landscaping strategies available to you. These include but are not limited to:
- Using recycled materials such as broken concrete and salvaged metal in your landscape
- Mulching your garden beds
- Did you know that when trees are mulched they act like a sponge that naturally filters water and helps prevent runoff and pollution?
- Installing permeable paving
- Planting drought-tolerant trees and perennials
- Using a passive solar landscape design that helps maximize sun exposure in the winter and shade in the summer
