“Sustainable Landscaping Austin”
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE LANDSCAPING?
Sustainable landscaping is achieved by using the natural materials in the environment to both build, and plant with, that are already growing naturally in any particular area. Every region of the world has it’s own unique climate that fosters the natural growth and formation of different minerals, stones, woods, and plants which don’t require these natural resources to be imported from another area or region. Native plants and materials are a territories natural resources which can be found within and on the surface of the land.
By planting eco-friendly plants and gardens, as well as building outdoor features such as patios, decks, fire pits and fireplaces with native materials, we are able to create sustainable landscaping for your Austin home which naturally blends with our cities natural landscape. By using native materials in your landscape design, we are able to preserve the natural beauty of Austin, while preserving the resources that are being depleted in other areas – faster than they are naturally produced. Using native stone, brick and woods for building an outdoor kitchen in Austin for instance, will make for an outdoor feature that will have a stronger foundation in it’s structure built with native materials which are meant to “sustain” in our region. It is important to choose the materials for our outdoor design with diligence. By keeping in mind how certain materials will ‘hold up’ in the area we live, we are able to create more value in our outdoor features when building with materials that are meant to thrive in our climate. The same goes for the plants and trees we choose for the landscaping of our property.
Any time we have the choice, we should choose to build with materials that are found easily in the natural environment we live. Making that choice has a positive impact on the environment, while giving your landscaping a longer life in it’s “Eco-friendly” foundation.
