sustainable landscape services help the earth
A sustainable landscape is good for your pocketbook and for our planet.
Installing plants, flowers, trees and shrubs that conserve, rather than waste, natural resources is a practice that is growing in popularity among conscientious Bay Area homeowners and businesses. Gachina Landscape Management is at the forefront of this effort.
Too often, landscapes of past years used excessive amounts of fossil fuels and water. Harsh synthetic chemicals were used to fertilize and control insects and pests. Plants that were not native to the area required more nutrients and water than was naturally available.
A sustainable landscape is the environmentally sound alternative to yesterday’s landscaping practices. Gachina clients are delighted to learn that sustainable landscaping is possible without sacrificing a captivating yard or stunning grounds.
Elements of sustainable landscape services
Done the Gachina way, a sustainable landscape adds beauty to the grounds of an estate, corporate property or yard while reducing the amount of effort it takes to keep it looking attractive.
Our definition of a sustainable landscape:
- It’s natural, using a variety of non-invasive plants and shrubs that help support insects, birds, and other animals. These thrifty plants also need fertilizing and watering less frequently.
- It’s colorful and diverse. A sustainable landscape in California doesn’t have to consist of only cacti and grasses. There are many brilliant flowers and shrubs that are at home in a sustainable setting in our state.
- It’s less expensive. Along with reducing or even eliminating artificial irrigation and fertilization, sustainable landscapes require less maintenance, such as mowing and weeding. The overall costs of a sustainable landscape can be a fraction of the cost of a conventional landscape.
- It’s good for the environment and people. Studies show sustainable landscapes can reduce air and water pollution and even reinvigorate soil that has been depleted by non-native plants and chemicals.
