If you are like most Americans, you work hard to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion. However, are you doing anything to implement the newest landscaping trends in your home or business? An excellent trend that is predicted for 2017 is a sustainable landscape. This refers to a landscape design that addresses environmental concerns such as global warming, increased energy costs and water conservation. A sustainable landscape is an eco-friendly landscape.
Don’t worry; a sustainable landscape can still be aesthetically pleasing. However, it will be equipped to promote natural balance within its conditions. A sustainable landscape should not only protect the environment, with the use of organic fertilizers and natural pest control products, but it should also include the right low-maintenance plants and shrubs that require less reserve resources. An example would be drought-tolerant plants and plants that are native to the area.
While a sustainable landscape gives immeasurable benefit to your environment (less soil and air pollution, less water usage, etc.), it also provides you with some highlighted advantages too. A sustainable landscape offers the following for homeowners:
- Easy to maintain
- Cost-efficient, lower water bill
- Safe outdoor space for family and friends
- Eco-friendly environment for pets, local birds and wildlife
