You have several opportunities each day to make decisions that impact the environment in a positive way. It could be as simple as throwing your empty bottle water into a recycle bin instead of a trash can, or as major as remodeling your home or landscaping to feature elements that will benefit the environment substantially over time. Lehnhoff’s Landscaping is here with more information about the importance of eco-friendly landscaping elements.
Why is Eco-Friendly Landscaping Important?
Taking care of our planet in the best ways we possibly can is our inherent duty as living humans. For good reason, several individuals and businesses are opting to “go green” and become more environmentally conscious. Eco-friendly landscaping elements are important because they can protect your surrounding habitat, minimize your water usage, and enhance your property.
What Are The Elements of Eco-Friendly Landscaping?
There are several ways you can incorporate eco-friendly elements into your landscape design. At Lehnhoff’s Landscaping, our experienced and professional staff can make your landscape more environmentally conscious by choosing plant species that are native to your specific habitat. Plants that are native to your habitat require less maintenance and water in comparison to exotic plants, and minimize the need for harmful pesticides. We can also reduce your water usage by implementing drought-resistant plant species and designing your planting surface to harvest more rainwater and runoff.
How Can I Save Money With Eco-Friendly Landscaping?
There are a few different ways that eco-friendly landscaping can help you save money. Exotic plants can attract pests. Avoiding exotic plants and including native plants in your landscaping will decrease the need to purchase pesticides. If you enjoy planting food in your garden (click here to learn more about cost-effective benefits of instant gardens), adding compost to it is a great way to encourage plant growth without spending money on chemical fertilizers. If you are looking to cut the cost of your home energy bill, implementing deciduous shade trees (that drop their leaves in the fall) into your landscape is a great solution. Why? Because these trees provide added shade for your home, reducing your need to cool your home using your air conditioning during the hotter months.
