A sustainable landscape design is about having a low-maintenance, beautiful landscape and so much more.
For something to be sustainable, it must be able to be maintained using the fewest resources possible. That means a sustainable landscape design must use water efficiently and not use any potentially hazardous pesticides or fertilizers. At Garden Environments, we believe the key to achieving this goal is by incorporating as many native plants as possible into your landscape design.
Native plants have had decades, centuries, or even longer to completely adapt to the environment and soil conditions here in the Chapel Hill, North Carolina area. As a result, they thrive with minimal support so you have a sustainable landscape design that is easy to maintain. You won’t have to put a great deal of time and attention to your landscaping as you would with plants that aren’t suited to this area. Instead of spending your time coaxing your plants to life, you can enjoy viewing those that thrive all on their own.
A sustainable landscape design is not just about having a low-maintenance, beautiful landscape. It also involves being in the position to support the local ecosystem. The local birds, pollinators, and wildlife all depend on plants being around that suit their preferences, dietary needs, and other considerations. You can do your part to combat the lost habitats that occur from development by creating a sustainable landscape design that replaces what was taken from them.
