Sustainable Landscape Design

Sustainable Landscape Design

Sustainable Landscape Design – Adding sustainable landscape design to your home is a great way to add curb appeal and increase your own use and enjoyment of your yard space. A major myth of xeriscaping or sustainable gardening is that local plants are dull and plain, but there are many vibrantly colored native plants and flowers that fit into the sustainable and natural category. Most major plant supply stores and big chains will have a local section, making it easy to select plants that you know will do well in your front or back yard, and any landscape designer will create a custom garden of beautiful local foliage that work well together. Plus, by replacing some of that unnatural lawn with native plants you won’t have to deal with the unsightly brown grass that’s indicative of winter dormancy, which encourages additional curb appeal all year round.

Indoor Fish Pond – If you’ve never seen an indoor fish pond or are of the mind that the only place for a fishpond is outdoors, it’s time to readjust your thinking.

Every winter runs the risk of losing the plant and fish life in your pond with the first freeze. As a result, more and more people are coming up with a method for bringing the outdoors, in and forming your very own pond indoors is a beautiful alternative to a tired old aquarium. While an indoor pond doesn’t have to be beautiful in order to be functional, you can choose to make it a focal point and conversation piece quite easily.

The Second Rate Lawn

The Second Rate Lawn

The Second Rate Lawn – The vast majority of the lawns are second rate. Your first task must be to discover the cause of the second rate condition. In this way you will be able to apply the correct cure and also know how to avoid its return once the lawn has been restored to the first rate condition.

When making a new lawn, careful attention must be paid to site preparation, drainage and the selection of turf or seed. Carelessness at this stage is likely to result in a second rate lawn. Too much of the wrong treatment can be as harmful as too little of the right one. Liming when it isn’t necessary, over-feeding in the fall and frequent use of a heavy roller can all ruin good grass.
