Building a new home or undergoing a major remodel presents a unique opportunity to create a living space that seamlessly integrates with the natural world. At EcoBuild+, we believe in fostering harmony between your home and its surroundings. Sustainable landscape design is a key element of this philosophy.

Here’s how to create a beautiful and eco-friendly landscape for your rebuilt home:

Embrace the Power of Native Plants:

  • Local Legends: Native plants are perfectly adapted to your region’s climate and soil conditions. They require less watering, thrive with minimal maintenance, and contribute to a healthy local ecosystem.
  • A Feast for the Senses: Native plants offer vibrant colors, captivating textures, and attractive blooms, creating a natural spectacle throughout the seasons.
  • Supporting Biodiversity: Native plants attract pollinators like butterflies and bees, fostering a healthy balance in the local food chain.

Water-Wise Practices:

  • Ditch the Lawn: Instead of vast expanses of traditional grass, opt for drought-resistant ground covers or native grasses that require less frequent watering.
  • Mulch it Up: A layer of mulch around your plants helps retain moisture in the soil, reducing evaporation and the need for frequent watering.
  • Rain Barrels to the Rescue: Capture rainwater using rain barrels and utilize it for watering your plants. This conserves precious freshwater resources.

Creating a Wildlife Sanctuary:

  • Food and Shelter: Choose plants that provide food and shelter for local wildlife like birds, butterflies, and small mammals. This can include berry bushes, flowering shrubs, and native trees.
  • The Right H2O Oasis: Consider installing a birdbath or small pond to provide a source of water for wildlife.
  • Let Nature Take Its Course: Leave some areas of your landscape uncultivated to create natural habitats for beneficial insects and small animals.
