Of all the trends sweeping the nation, the green gardening movement is perhaps one of the most interesting. In a field that was once dominated by pesticides, poisons, and other materials that directly impact the environment, more and more people are beginning to use natural products in their landscaping ventures. The movement is one back to nature – more natural and less intrusive.
Isn’t that the way landscaping was meant to be?
This movement was spurred by the desire to bring a more nature back to…well nature. Homeowners wanted to attract animals, birds, and butterflies to their yards. This required moving away from the perfectly groomed, sterile backyard and to more natural, wildly flowing vegetation.
You are beginning to see a lot more grasses, a lot more use of ground cover versus lawns. This not only creates a safe, aesthetically pleasing environment, but it also cuts down on a lot of lawn care and maintenance. So it’s a win-win.
So have some fun and put some nature back in you backyard.
