Environmental Gardens

Some modern gardens can be environmentally unfriendly, whether it’s because they waste water or use harmful chemicals. At Floral & Hardy, we understand the importance of reducing your impact on the environment, and can create environmental gardens that work in harmony with the natural world.

 

 

Eco-Friendly Garden Design
Even small gardens can have a big impact on the environment, and so we would look at ways to make them more efficient, without sacrificing beautiful design. One way to make your garden more environmentally friendly is to make it a pleasant environment for wildlife. You could grow wildflowers or other flowers that bees love, or even make some space to grow your own fruits or vegetables. Using species of plants that are native to the area is also more environmentally friendly, as they tend to grow naturally without too much extra watering or the use of chemicals. By adding raised flower beds, you can also use less water, and grow a large number of plants in even the smallest areas.

If you are looking to go organic and cut down on chemicals, then having your own compost making facilities means you can nourish your plants and recycle waste. We could also add water butts to collect rain, or even the grey water from your kitchen, bathroom, or appliances, which can then be used around the garden. If you are thinking of adding lighting, then solar options are practical and free to run, and while patio heaters don’t have a great reputation among environmentalists, there are more eco-friendly options such as electric.

Recycling and re-using different items allows you to change the look of your garden without damaging the environment. Railway sleepers can be turned into stylish, rustic decking, or to make a path, while old barrels could be turned into patio furniture. Upcycled gardens make use of all sorts of everyday objects, turning them into interesting garden features, and avoiding sending things to landfill.

Floral & Hardy create environmental gardens of all sizes in the city, suburbs, and country. Simply give us a call for an initial consultation on 0844 884 2425.
