3 Easy Ways To Have A More Sustainable Garden

Sustainable gardens have a very positive impact on the environment and local wildlife. So here are three easy ways to make your garden more sustainable. 1. Plant native species. Opting for plants that are native to your area will make it easier to keep your garden looking good. Local plants are suited to the climate and soil conditions in your area so you won’t have to use chemicals in your garden. 2, Start composting. The ingredients in compost can improve soil texture, add nutrients to your garden and reduce your carbon footprint. You may also save money as it will reduce the need for chemical fertilizers. 3. Save rainwater. An easy to conserve water is to catch rainwater. This can be done by using a rain barrel to catch the water and attaching a hose to the barrel so it can be used to water plants.
