It is easy to get caught up in your landscaping chores and forget that sometimes you can simply kick back and enjoy your garden instead of tending to it. When you implement these eco-friendly gardening tips into your landscaping strategy, you can not only save yourself a little time, but also the environment a little hassle.
- Install a water barrel and save some water. Water barrels are easy to nestle into the landscape and at 55 gallons each, the amount of water they collect through the growing season can really add up.
- Start composting. Most table scraps, kitchen scraps, and yard scraps are eco-friendly gardening materials that will break down in the compost pile to form a rich booster for the soil in your garden.
- Go old school with your mowing. That’s right, ditch the gas lawnmower and use an electric mower or an old-fashioned reel mower. Both will save you considerable money while keeping your lawn nice and neat throughout the summer.
