Do you want to make your outdoor space an eco-friendly retreat for the environment? We have learnt one thing over the summer: water should not be used excessively. These low-maintenance garden landscaping ideas will transform your outdoor space to be an eco-friendly oasis.

Create a Functional Space to Entertain and Replace Your Lawn

Unless you’ve turned your backyard into a mini-golf green, do you really need that much lawn? Make absolutely no mistake, your outdoor space is prime real estate. You can make it an entertainment space with a fire pit and pergola. Pergolas are a great way to give climbing plants a place to grow. These eco-friendly, low-maintenance climbers are great for any garden, whether you love sweet peas and jasmine or grape vines.

Outdoor Lighting Create Drama, Security and an Illusion of Space.

Outdoor lighting is the top-rated feature in garden landscaping. It adds drama and dimension to outdoor spaces and makes them appear larger. This is a highly sought-after feature with many benefits. It can be either solar, which is great in today’s economic climate or electrical. Spotlights can also work well when placed along pathways, in trees or on walls.

Maximize Space with Vertical Wall Planting

A vertical wall garden is a great option for people who want to grow their own vegetables and herbs in an economically challenging environment. Attach planter boxes with hooks to a wall that receives 50% sun and 50% shade. You can fill your wall with planter boxes. Just make sure to leave at least half a meter between each one, in terms of width and length. This landscaping idea is great because the water from the top boxes trickles down to the lower planter boxes. You should note that although herbs can be planted all year long, some vegetables only grow in the summer or winter. So make sure you choose the right place to plant your vegetables.

There are many eco-friendly ways to enjoy your back and front outdoor spaces without spending a lot of money or taking up too much space. It is a dangerous time for water, so if you haven’t made the effort to make your backyard and front yard more sustainable, now is the time.

We can help you make your outdoor spaces eco-friendly. We can not only provide the right water-wise trees and plants but can also create an outdoor entertainment area that can be used throughout the year.
