Essentially, the key is to try to reduce your garden’s impact on the environment by:
- Creating less waste
- Using fewer chemicals
- Preserving natural resources
If you are doing and prioritising these three actions in your garden, you are well on your way to creating an eco-friendly garden.
Here are our first 3 tips in this series to help you get started:
- Go organic – use organic solutions to treat pests.
- Create your own compost heap from compost-friendly kitchen and garden scraps, this will assist with the condition of your soil and also function as a natural fertiliser for your plants.
- Recycle – before buying something new for the garden, like a wind barrier or covering to make shade with – look in the garage (or in the house) for something that can be repurposed.
