This Earth Day, Create an Eco-Friendly Outdoor Living Space
Earth Day is right around the corner, so why not embrace the Earth and celebrate this holiday with an eco-friendly outdoor living space? Earth Day takes place during the spring when flowers are blossoming, birds are chirping, and the sun is shining. Embrace your surroundings with a living space that is safe for you, as well as the environment.
The first way to prep your eco-friendly outdoor living space is by planting with a purpose. Limit the amount of green space in your yard so it doesn’t look overdone, while also planting things with a dual purpose. For example, herbs or fruit-bearing plants can add greenery to your yard, as well as food or spices for your kitchen.
Another excellent enhancement to your outdoor living space is a compost. Composting food scraps helps your soil become nutrient rich, making the ground more productive for growing new fruits or vegetables. Compositing also directly reduces carbon dioxide and other powerful greenhouse gases.
If you have a grill in your outdoor living space, make sure it’s gas. If not, consider a gas grill that is more eco-friendly than the alternative charcoal grill. Gas grills emit less smoke, create less pollution, and are an overall better option for our environment. Plus, they have a quick start time, they are usable year-round, and they require minimal cleanup.
The final touch to your eco-friendly outdoor living space is permeable pavers. These pavers are 100 percent natural, sustainable, and recyclable. Plus, they add an inviting appearance to any yard.
