Maintaining an organic landscape is a fun task for anyone. Also, the benefits of going organic highly outweigh any drawbacks. There are many ways to get started with your new organic landscape, and if you are in or around the communities of Concord, Walnut Creek, Lafayette or Orinda, you can contact Laural Landscapes for help! Here are the top four benefits of going organic with your landscaping now.
1. Healthier Lawn
If you maintain a lawn, chances are your plants are addicted to fertilizer, frequent watering, and constant care. While this is not a bad thing by any means, it can be costly and time consuming to constantly tend to your lawn. Well-planned organic lawns are generally healthier because they can withstand any local condition, shrug off the occasional pest, and do not need to be tended to all of the time.
2. Greener Environment
Organic lawn care is very important because it directly impacts us and everything around us. As of 15 years ago, American homeowners were applying 70 million pounds of pesticides and tons of fertilizer every year, which compromises the environment. Consider what kind of fertilizer you are using, what happens to grass clippings, and the effects of using so much water. Going organic will not only help drastically cut back on these numbers but will help the planet!
3. More Variety, Less Work
Going organic not only lets you have more options when it comes to planting, but it saves a lot of time. Your first step can be mulching, which leaves the soil moist enough to thrive. Without it you will need to spend time, money and resources to save your plants. Also, you can save grass clippings and give worms a meal! Finally, be sure to choose different plants that will thrive in the environment and not require lots of maintenance. If you need help choosing and are in or around the communities of Concord, Walnut Creek, Lafayette or Orinda, you can contact Laural Landscapes for help on getting started
4. Less Water Used
Every plant needs a certain level of water, some more than others. Having healthy and fresh soil eliminates the need to water constantly especially in summer. It can save you lots of time and resources, and it has a good impact on the environment.
