We’re celebrating Earth Day this year by giving you a few landscaping pointers that are easy to implement and are also easy on the planet! April 22nd marks 51 years since the birth of the modern environmental movement and we’re excited to share some ideas that will help lower your environmental impact and hopefully bring you a little joy in the process.
Go for Native Plants
Opting for native plants is a great place to start. Not only are they better for the local wildlife, but they also tend to thrive- since they’re used to being here. Native plants and trees don’t need fertilizer or pesticides because (for the most part) they are already resistant to regional diseases and pests. Here’s a great resource from the Minnesota DNR, where you can learn all about the many benefits and robust selection of native plants.
