Resources for Creating a Green, Organic and Healthy Landscape - Fairfield CountyFebruary 17, 2015
Going organic with a green landscape will absolutely improve the health and quality of your landscape environment and potentially your health as well. Why not make up your mind to make a change today for a more beautiful, healthier landscape today? Increasing biodiversity with the addition of native plants and trees will help you transition to an organic garden or green landscape significantly easier. Designing and planting that encourages beneficial insect species is essential to success in ecological landscape development.
There are many excellent resources at your disposable, both web based national organizations as well as local groups and organizations who are passionate about ecological landscape design, nature, ecology and resource conservation. We especially like the Ecological Landscape Alliance and Association of Professional Landscape Designers nationally. Locally, we also have excellent resources in The Garden Education Center of Greenwich and Greenwich Audubon. Right over the border in neighboring in NY there's the Westchester Native Plant Center with very cool demonstration gardens, especially the rain garden which I designed and helped build. Another great resource is New York Botanical Garden.
Sometimes a simple project requires more thought, communication and coordination than you would think, at first glance.
Is this going to be the year you plan on enjoying your beautiful, healthy Green landscape? Contact us today and let us help you develop a plan for reimagining a green landscape design for your property. Whether your dreams and desires include a water feature or expanded stone patio with an outdoor kitchen or incorporating vegetables and herbs as part of your new edible landscape, we can help turn your dreams and desires into reality. Landscape improvements can have a profound effect on our lifestyle and well being. The sooner you engage a plan, the sooner you will be realizing the benefits and rewards. Everything takes time and resources. Identifying what you like and don’t like is a start. What moves you...what makes you happy?
Is there something missing or something unattractive about your landscape that makes you frown? Put a smile on your landscape and a smile in your heart! Don’t you think you deserve something better from your life and landscape? Life is too short! It goes by too fast! Why not do something to make it better! Feel better! Make a change for the better! How about health..your health...your children's health...the health of your home and landscape environment? Too many of our communities are plagued by symptoms of environmental and human illness today. In previous generations, gluten intolerance, autism and many forms of cancer were much more uncommon, if not rare...what has changed?
Executing exceptional landscape design construction projects requires careful resource management. This extends from the natural resources on site (i.e. water, soil, plants, infrastructure) as well as human and financial resources.
