Running your own garden in a green way is a multi-benificial operation. It saves time, money and the environment at the same time whiile providing healthy food and a clean environment to enjoy the summers.
- Eat from your own garden
Maintaining a garden isn’t only a fun and rewarding job to do, but it can also feed your entire family. Growing tomatoes, onions and zuccini isn’t hard at all and provides you with fresh ingredients for your dishes. Some people say growing your own food is like printing your own money!
- Don’t use pesticides
Pesticides ruin the fun for everyone. Plants, insects and humans are harmed by them. Instead layer on some all-natural compost and recruit beneficial insect reinforcements to keep your garden in a green and healthy state.
- Compost, learn to love it
Wether you use kitchen scraps or leafs straight from your own trees and plants, using home made compost is a great way to recycle any leftovers which seem unwanted.
- Use freely available rainwater
Rainwater is free, saves tap water and is generally better for your garden. Collect it with a rainbarrel placed strategically and water your plants with it when neccessary. Water from the sky can contain up to 35% more oxygen, which is very important for your garden.
