Make Your Outdoor Backyard and Patio Eco-Friendly!
The warmer months are finally upon us and everyone is spending more and more of their time outside! However, some yards and patios just fall flat. Creating an outdoor living space is the ideal way to enjoy the great outdoors. If you’re interested in creating an area that doesn’t negatively affect the wonders of the environment, look no further. Here at Long Island Poolscapes, we specialize in creating eco-friendly outdoor living spaces and would love to help you design your own!
A great feature for your happy planet outdoor hangout is a compost bin! By integrating this easy-to-use feature, you’ll reduce the amount of waste your household produces and create your own nutrient-dense soil for everything you want to plant in your oasis while reducing the need for toxic fertilizers and weed killer. It’s as simple as creating a DIY bin or purchasing one that’s been set up for you, adding the approved food scraps, and keeping up some maintenance. It reduces greenhouse gases, cleaning the air around you and the rest of the world!
Another wonderful way to be environmentally conscious when planning out your space is to be mindful of what you plant. You don’t need an excessive amount of grass – it requires copious amounts of water to maintain and is often wasted space. Finding plants that serve multiple purposes like fruit trees for shade and tasty treats or herbs that can be thrown into all your dishes are ideal. This will also add a lot of variety and uniqueness to your space.
