In order to make a great landscape, there are certain
tried-and-tested practices that you can follow. Not only do
these practices help you create a beautiful landscape, they
also ensure that you do not waste any money and that you
are not harming the environment in any way.
Here are some of the best landscaping practices that you
can do in your own home garden.
- Design your landscape in a way where water is retained
well. This doesn’t only go for water that comes from your
sprinklers but also storm runoffs.
By having this kind of set-up, you do not spend a lot on
watering your plants and you also help keep your
community’s water supply at bay.
- Use fertilizers responsibly. Some people become
trigger-happy when it comes to using fertilizers on their
While putting in too much fertilizer can be detrimental to
the environment, using organic fertilizers or choosing
plants that are well-accustomed to the local environment
will help in curbing the problem.
- Take it easy on pesticides and weed killers – just like
fertilizers, pesticides and weed killers can do more harm
than good if used irresponsibly.
- Schedule watering of the plants. Watering the plants
early in the morning help in retaining the water much
longer than doing it at noon for example.
While considering the time for watering the plants may seem
like a small thing, it translates to something big when the
water supply is put into the equation.
