In construction the usage of the traditional materials such as earth bricks, concrete, and wood influences nature meaning the continued destruction of trees and exhaustion of mining resources.
As an alternative, the following sustainable materials can be used: bamboo, precast concrete slabs, recycled plastic, reclaimed wood and steel, plant-based Polyurethane Rigid Foam.
In landscaping, the utilization of appropriate plant materials that will perform best in your site’s specific microclimate conditions, ultimately reduces the need for heavy watering and maintenance is one of the best ways to work with nature. Installation of native plant materials together with drip irrigation systems that provide water exactly to roots can minimize wasteful spraying and excessive water usage.
Another eco-friendly practice landscapers can perform and is eco-friendly is mulching. While a lot of companies prefer using stones for plant beds which are not part of a natural soil building system, mulch is better for soil and is regarded more natural as it is breaking down and providing nutrients to the plants. Soil prep mulch with compost added will provide higher microbial activity and produce better results.
