What Is Sustainable Landscaping?

The idea of sustainable landscaping is a modern type of gardening that takes the environment into account. This form of landscaping considers functionality and ecological impact. Instead of relying solely on design and appearance, as with traditional landscaping, many sustainable landscaping projects incorporate composting, avoid using pesticides or employ only a limited amount, and consider the climate of the project site.

Many sustainable landscapes, such as those offered by B&B Custom Pools, include the following features:

  • Native plants: Our plant experts evaluate your yard to determine the best indigenous plant options for your landscape.
  • Veggie or fruit gardens: We can discuss your favorite herbs, veggies, or fruits, and create a personalized garden that nourishes the yard.
  • Plants or exotics that reflect local wildlife: If you are looking to draw-in local wildlife to your yard, we can create an area that serves as a sanctuary for native animals.
  • Water sources: Whether you want a natural pond, fountain, or birds’ bathing station, we can provide a water source in your yard that serves as a place for wildlife to access clean water.
  • Compost bins: This natural process of recycling organic matter, such as leaves and food scraps, manufactures fertilizer that enriches the soil.

The reduction of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, reduced emissions, soil conservation, and many more features are all important factors in preserving our local ecosystems. In these ways, sustainable landscaping plays a key role in healing the planet.

Our Sustainable Outdoor Living Services

At B&B Custom Pools, we work hand-in-hand with our customers to deliver the landscaping outcome that they have envisioned. By offering customized landscaping services, we incorporate various eco-friendly features into all of our projects. All of our sustainable designs work with the existing landscape of your yard and use companion planting to place mutually beneficial plants alongside each other, reducing pest pressure without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals. Some ideas for sustainable landscaping we suggest are:

  • An arboreal retreat with a variety of native trees
  • An English country garden with blooms and native plants
  • A habitat for local wildlife

Once you have a baseline design for your green landscape, you can begin contemplating other elements to add, such as:

  • Outdoor lighting
  • Shaded areas and similar structures
  • Dining furniture
  • Water features
  • Custom patios
  • Decks
  • Outdoor fire pits

Our experienced landscaping team can help you achieve a natural look with native plants and pollinator-friendly options. Additionally, customers can rotate in and out any new flowers and vegetables from time to time.

Our Landscaping Process

When it comes to transforming your outdoor living space into a sustainable and environmentally-conscious oasis, we take pride in following a pre-planned process. After discussing the vision for your yard with you during an initial consultation and design proposal, we apply for a construction permit. Once we have finished with the necessary paperwork, we can begin transforming your space.

Depending on the plans for your landscape, each process time differs. However, our team always plans to keep disturbances to a minimum and have your landscaping completed in the shortest amount of time possible.
