Choose Native Plants
Native plants are a crucial part of any sustainable garden. They are adapted to local conditions and require less water and care than non-native species. Moreover, they provide essential habitat and food sources for local wildlife. Learn more about the importance of native plants in our FAQ on maintaining eco-balance and biodiversity.
Adopt Sustainable Practices
Sustainable practices are actions that help to maintain the health and vitality of your garden and the wider environment. These can include composting, rainwater harvesting, using organic fertilizers, and planting pollinator-friendly plants.
