10 Tips for an Eco-Friendly Garden

Choose local flora. Locally adapted plants need less water, fertilizer, and pesticides. Local fauna needs their habitat and food.

1.  Choose Native Plants

Reduce water waste with drip irrigation or soaker hoses. Collect rainwater in barrels to water your garden.

2. Conserve Water

Compost kitchen leftovers, yard garbage, and other organic stuff. Compost improves soil, lowers chemical fertilizers, and reduces trash.

3. Composting

Promote ladybugs, spiders, and birds to combat pests. Do not use chemical pesticides that damage beneficial insects and alter the ecology.

4. Natural Pest Control

Reduce synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Instead, feed your plants organically or manufacture your own compost and fertilizers.

5. Stay away from synthetics

Grow flowers that attract bees and butterflies. Good insects like ladybugs and predatory wasps can control garden pests.

6. Draw Beneficial Insects

Tree chips or straw can be used as organic mulch. Mulch controls soil temperature, moisture, and weeds.

7. Mulching

Consider sustainability when designing your landscape. Utilize repurposed materials for walkways and structures. If you require garden lights, go energy-efficient.

8. Design Sustainable Gardens

Maintain a vegetable garden to feed yourself. This decreases your carbon footprint by reducing store-bought produce transportation and packing.

9. Grow Your Own Food
