An Organic Approach to Lawncare and Landscaping

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.
