Many of our customers are sensitive to the idea that landscaping and outdoor services should be ecological. Here’s some of what we’ve observed as we have progressed in providing our customers with real organic and natural landscaping processes.
Mowing is something that can be done fairly easily, and at relatively little expense to the environment. It doesn’t involve spraying chemicals or trying to fully prevent the growth of various vegetation.
The problem is where you get into areas that you can’t mow. But being creative about mowing does help to set the stage for more natural landscaping processes, and we talk about this in detail as we put together care plans for our customers’ properties.
Again, working against Mother Nature means taking an open piece of land and making it manicured, where it has the natural tendency to become overgrown. In some cases this is a recipe for disaster, because you’re going to keep struggling in the same ways, exhausting resources and really not conserving natural energy in your landscaping plan.
One example of this is that where you want to inhibit weed growth, you have to have thriving natural plants, not an open expanse of ground. The plant that has reached maturity will in and of itself control weed growth, to an extent, if installation is done right.
The other option is to plant functional plants in areas that would otherwise need to be manicured weekly throughout a temperate season.
All of this involves detailed planning. It’s done on a case-by-case basis – there is no cookie-cutter or template for how this works, although there are good common guidelines that we use as an experienced company. But just as important is listening to the customer and his or her outlook on his or her property, because at the end of the day, the property owner decides what approach to take. We help to consult and then we work to implement that plan.
