Most homeowners start making their homes more environmentally friendly by using energy-efficient appliances and compact fluorescent light bulbs. However, there are also many choices that are outside the house to ensure that you are environmentally conscious like making an environmentally friendly landscape. Eco-friendly landscape saves water, time and money and a green yard also means less work since it requires minimum maintenance. Conventional landscaping requires more pesticides that can harm nature and wastes a lot of water. Environmentally friendly landscaping needs less water involvement and less water usage. Rather than using harmful pesticides, you can opt to apply basic wisdom to put together your yard with the natural ecosystem.
