Commercial landscaping can be eco-friendly! Here are four things you can do to make your landscaping more sustainable.
- Recycle water, either by using rain barrels or a greywater system, which redirects water used for washing into an irrigation system instead of the sewer system.
- Choose native plants. These plants are well-adapted to the area, requiring less water and maintenance.
- Use plants that give shade. Such plants help with energy efficiency by reducing the constant need for air conditioning.
- Opt for ground cover options such as mulch or compost. Any type of ground cover will help reduce the amount of water lost through evaporation.
Recycling water, using seasonal plants, and incorporating mulch are some of the most eco-friendly landscape practices. Ready to start implementing some of these ideas? The SFM Landscape team is here to help.
