As the world we live in becomes more and more environmentally conscious, it’s important to include eco-friendly trends in your commercial landscape design plans. Not only will these trends help your property fit into the overall landscape, but some just help your business keep a little extra green in the bank.
Here are some tips to get you started:
- Use water retention systems to incorporate water conservation in your irrigation system design. Think about using particular soil that better retains water, planting low water plants, using mulch, and getting an efficient irrigation system designed by Rosehill Gardens.
- Install low-maintenance, low-water plants. Ornamental grasses, pansies and tulips fit into this category.
- Plant strategically. Whether you are placing trees to help shade windows or using plants to help filter indoor air, make sure your plants serve a purpose that is both useful and beneficial to your staff and your business.
- If you really want to show your company’s greener side, consider rooftop gardens. Aside from the unique look, rooftop gardens of moss, wildflowers or other appropriate plants can help buildings save energy on heating and air and can actually help your rooftop last longer.
