WHAT IS REGENERATIVE LANDSCAPING?
Is your company looking for a more natural, sustainable approach to landscaping design? Regenerative landscaping may be just what you’re looking for. This landscape enhancement method goes beyond sustainability, enriching the soil, and absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It is an excellent way to lower your business’ carbon footprint and improve the environment.
Regenerative Landscaping is a Promising Strategy in the Fight Against Climate Change
Because carbon dioxide can be stored in the soil, a regenerative landscape has the potential to help replace the tens of billions of tons of soil carbon lost to the atmosphere. The top three feet of soil contains an incredible amount of carbon – and it can hold much more. In the average residential yard, rebuilding and increasing organic matter in the top 12 inches of topsoil by just 1% could remove one ton or more of carbon from the atmosphere. Given the size of your commercial grounds, how much could a regenerative approach aid in the fight against climate change?
Impressive Benefits for Your Commercial Business
In addition to environmental benefits, regenerative landscapes also offer a variety of advantages for your business:
- Regenerative designs are lower maintenance
This increasingly popular sustainable landscaping method features a biodiverse assortment of plants that build and improve the soil. It supports healthier plants with enhanced resilience against pests, disease, and climate extremes.
- Superior moisture and erosion control
Native, drought-tolerant plants require far less water, reducing irrigation needs and utility costs. These plants improve soil conditions, reducing runoff and erosion.
- Regenerative landscaping supports a healthier, happier environment
Sustainable, drought-tolerant designs improve air quality and reduce the urban heat island effect. They also provide a home for wildlife and declining pollinators, such as honeybees, further supporting the environment.
- Visually pleasing
Successful regenerative designs add value to your landscape, complementing your commercial property while blending in harmony with surrounding natural spaces.
