How Does Landscape Design Impact the Environment?
May 24, 2012
We often talk about the benefits of professional landscaping and the aesthetic appeal of the beautiful custom pieces we offer at Main Street Landscape. The functionality of each piece is important, and so is learning how to maintain the health and growth of your plants and garden throughout the year. While we pride ourselves on fine craftsmanship and satisfied customers, we also make it a top priority to protect the environment. So the question for the day is…
How Can Landscape Design Help the Environment?
When creating the perfect landscape design, it may not occur to most people that your design can affect the environment. A healthy lawn does a lot more than just look good; its functionality is seen throughout our ecosystem in a variety of ways:
- Healthy grass is home to worms and insects which feed birds
- Thick grass prevents soil erosion and filters contaminants from rainwater
- Grass also absorbs pollutants like dust and soot
- Grass converts carbon dioxide to oxygen; a process that cleans the air
How Can a Professional Landscape Designer Help?
Hiring a professional landscape designer will allow you to have the beautiful garden or plant arrangement that you want while maintaining the integrity of your lawn. Not only does this give you a stunning lawn that visually compliments your new landscape design, it can also properly irrigate your lawn and create the perfect environment for your grass and plants to thrive.
Main Street Landscape has always kept the environment’s well-being a priority in all of our projects, and we want to educate you on the importance of our practices. One healthy lawn won’t make an impact on our environment, but together we can make a difference. Call Main Street Landscape to learn about our best practices and to see how landscape design can transform your lawn for the better!
