Certain landscape designs can definitely be more environmentally friendly than others. At SolidAce Construction & Development Corp., we incorporate quality, Eco-friendly home features., we can help design a home based on your individual needs and lifestyle using the latest in green technology.
Extend your environmentally friendly home features into your landscaping with these tips:
Help Save Water
In the Philippines, it rains a lot! So our yards can be naturally watered most days of the year. In the summer season, keep your watering to a minimum. Shiny, perfect lawns are water greedy. Consider moss in lieu of high-maintenance grass for an eco-friendly alternative that will save you money on your water bill.
Use plants that grow naturally in the Philippines. Some plants can even be invasive, wreaking havoc on your other plants and the surrounding ecosystem. Native plants/fruit bearing trees are also beneficial to bugs, birds, and small animals to keep our nature in tune.
Keep it chemical-free
If you have pests, consider the use of bird nets or fencing rather than pesticides. Most chemicals harm the environment and spread easily through drainage systems into our bodies of water. Read labels carefully if you do choose products on the market.
Minimize soil erosion
Have a landscape design that will avoid or minimize soil erosion. Complicated raised land or gardens above rockery designs without thought for drainage can add to erosion because of disturbed soil. Erosion will require the use of heavy equipment to fix, causing pollution and a frustrating repair process that will be expensive.
