Landscape companies that focus on sustainable gardening practices. You can find providers that focus on garden design and installation, or regular maintenance. Conventional landscaping rely heavily on chemical fertilization, pesticides and herbicides that can deplete the soil and are harmful to human and wildlife. For example, the high concentration of nitrogen in chemical fertilizers contaminates groundwater and damages aquatic life. The mining of phosphate, an essential ingredient in fertilizers, destroys the natural landscape. Chemicals in pesticides are found to pose health risk. In contrast, sustainable gardening techniques focus on soil preparation, utilization of native plants, drought-resistant garden, rainwater harvest, companion gardening using organic materials to establish a natural ecosystem.
