An organic approach to landscape design and gardening is in order due to
habitat fragmentation and newly built subdivisions and roads throughout the country. Organic
landscaping and gardening is no longer a fad.
A diverse landscape containing many species of plants not only supports
an abundance of wildlife, it is also less prone to large scale
devastation from insect pests or diseases.
Not only should you consider native plant types to your area, but you should also carefully
cultivate a healthy soil that has a balance of mineral nutrients. Good,
healthy soil produces strong plants which are better able to withstand
plant diseases and insect damage. You'll also need to fertilize and
water consistently, taking care to use organic mulch and compost.
