A well-maintained landscape can add value to your home and make your outdoor space more enjoyable. But it’s also important to pay attention to the environment when landscaping, as plants play an essential role in providing habitats for wildlife. Here are some tips on creating a beautiful landscape while being mindful of the environment.

Know your Climate

When choosing which plants to include in your landscape, it’s important to consider the climate where you live. Some plants may not be able to survive cold winters, hot summers, or coastal winds so researching what types of plants thrive in different climates is key.

  • To ensure you have glorious plants even in the dead of winter, plant hostas, coral bells or snowdrops that are always a winner
  • Make use of drought-resistant plants such as Pennisetum and Caenothus that have lovely colours to thrive in the hot summers.
  • For those coastal areas that receive harsh salty winds try planting agapanthus, olearia x scilloniensis or sea lavender, all provide great texture and colour that can withstand the sea conditions

Make use of Rainwater…

Water is an essential part of any landscape to ensure it thrives but chemicals in tap water can be harmful to your plants. So try using rain barrels/butts to collect rainwater and use this where possible and the lower pH will be great for ericaceous plants such as azaleas!

  • Did you know around 24,000l of rainwater can be collected from your roof each year? That could easily water your garden in the summer months!

Choose Native Plants

Another way to be mindful of the environment when landscaping is by choosing native plants that are naturally found in your region and therefore don’t require as much maintenance as they’ve already adapted perfectly to their local environment. Native plants also help attract beneficial wildlife such as birds, butterflies, bees, and other pollinators which can help maintain a balanced ecosystem around your home.

With proper planning and research, you can create an outdoor space that looks great while also helping sustain local ecosystems. If you’re looking for more information about this topic or would like some advice about creating your garden design, get in touch and we’d be happy to help.
