How do landscapers help the environment?

As everyone knows, plants and trees capture carbon dioxide from the environment every day and, in return, produce life-saving oxygen. Healthy and fertile soil is necessary for good plant growth, supports microorganisms and results in plants that are more resistant to diseases and pests. Choose the right plant for the right place. If a plant is in a place where it must struggle to survive, most owners instinctively respond with additional water, fertilizers, or pesticides to improve the situation.

A well-located plant will require less maintenance and pruning, and will help you avoid the cost and waste of replacing it. Growing the right plants in the right places; using compost and mulch; employing natural fertilization, weed and pest control; and implementing effective moisture control are all components of sustainable landscaping. That's why many people today turn to the services of professional landscapers and re-beautify their outdoor spaces. While there are some landscapers who may not use industry best practices (which can create a bad reputation for the industry), most qualified landscape professionals are actually doing a good job and doing so in an environmentally responsible manner.

There are best practices that we, and other responsible companies like ours, are adopting to ensure that properties actually get all the environmental benefits they can from their garden spaces. The grass and landscapes that serve as the backdrop for these memorable moments are the root of happiness, thanks to the knowledge, experience and passion of landscape professionals. With these benefits in mind, modern urban developments are increasingly turning to commercial landscape designers and commercial landscape management companies to find new ways to bring nature back to the city. The benefits are both economic and ecological: sustainable landscaping increases the value of properties, reduces irrigation, fertilizer and pesticide costs, and provides unique aesthetic appeal.

With the right partner in commercial landscaping, you can ensure that you receive all the environmental benefits of landscaping. However, there are many companies that have committed themselves and adopted practices to ensure that their gardening work has a positive impact on the environment. As efforts to combat climate change become increasingly urgent, a term that is gaining visibility and popularity is “sustainable landscaping”. Too often, uninformed but well-intentioned people discuss landscaping as if a managed commercial landscape were somehow detrimental to the environment.

While planning a landscape using only native plants will not completely eliminate the need for fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, it can greatly reduce it. Even in areas that have water restrictions and suffer from droughts, it is important that grass and landscapes remain a viable component of healthy communities.
