Green Landscaping Design is as important, ecologically as anything you can do inside your home. The reason is that our landscapes consume the lion's share of our water, most of the inorganic chemicals that are used in and around our homes are used in the landscape and in good weather, we spend vast amounts of time in our landscaped yards.

There are many eco friendly measures you can use to install and maintain your green landscape, making them a healthy and enjoyable place to be.

Consider Reducing The Size Of Your Manicured Lawn.

Our lawns consume the most time, effort, water and chemicals of anything in our homes. Your very first consideration should be to reduce the actual size of the lawn area. I'm not talking about total landscape area, but the lawn itself.

Not only can you reduce water by reducing lawn area, you reduce fertilizer usage, mowing time, pest control measures and lots of other side benefits.

If you have a what is called a postage stamp home site right now, we can guide you in adding class and flair to minimizing your lawn in new and creative ways, giving you very dynamic spaces in your outdoor living experiences. Take a look at our Organic Lawn Design Page.

Add a Drip Irrigation System To You Landscape Bedding Areas.

The single most water-saving measure can be to add a drip irrigation system to your landscape beds. In our Drip Irrigation Design Section we will give you directions for doing this, including what pipe to use, how to design the system, actual installation tips, controllers to use and many other ideas.

You can cut your water usage by 50% with some of these systems because the moisture is delivered directly to the root zone of the plant, giving you the most efficiency available. You also minimize disease by doing this as the leaf structure isn't constantly being drenched with water.
