Alternative Environments understands it can be difficult to see the value of landscaping. Many folks simply leave their yards as-is and merely keep things trimmed and neat. Adding some decorations or going beyond cleaning is a double effort for them and could even be unnecessary in their eyes. But there are also people who pay more attention to their yards and really allocate time in designing and decorating them. These individuals and families tend to spend more time outside—enjoying the exterior as much as their interior comforts.
Investing for landscaping is a luxury for some but for others, it is part of their hobby and in giving back to nature the care it deserves. But aside from those mentioned, what other good reasons is there that would urge us to do landscaping? Is it really necessary or just something merely inclined to aesthetics? Does landscaping really matter? Here are some ways creative and intentional landscaping by a residential landscaping company can make a real difference:
Xeriscaping is the conservation of water through creative dry and low-maintenance landscaping. Originally developed for arid, drought-prone areas, the principles of xeriscape have an ever-broadening appeal. Water continues to increase in value and develop into a limited resource, all landscaping projects, residential or commercial, can benefit from this alternative style of landscape design.
Alternative Environments, your residential landscaping company, specializes in xeriscape design and installation. Xeriscapes do not have a single look—almost any landscaping style can be achieved. The principles can be applied to all or part of a yard, anywhere in the southeast.
Benefits of Xeriscape Landscape Design
Save Water: For most of North America, over 50% of residential water used is applied to landscape and lawns. Xeriscape can reduce landscape water use by as much as 75%.
Lower Maintenance: Aside from occasional pruning and weeding, xeriscape maintenance is minimal. Watering requirements are low and can be fulfilled with a simple irrigation system.
No Fertilizers or Pesticides: Using plants native to your area will eliminate the need for chemical supplements to prevent bugs or to enhance growth. Nutrients are provided by healthy organic soil.
