Sustainable Residential Landscape Architecture
Plants play a very important role in a healthy ecosystem. They reduce pollutants, oxygenate the atmosphere, and are important to overall human health. By using a comprehensive approach to sustainable landscape design, Sustainable Residential Landscape Architecture (SRLA) practices can improve water and energy efficiency while using plants to eliminate chemical fertilizers, produce food, and clean the air.
Homeowners can use plants to recreate healthy ecosystems and reduce some of the negative effects of residential buildings. There are many simple ways to experience the benefits of plants — restoring native plants to residential landscapes, using plants as food sources, creating wildlife habitats through the strategic use of plantings, and adding indoor plants to improve air quality inside your home.
If included as part of your master landscape design plan, SRLA can help you use plants to cut down on the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. And as we all know, cutting outr chemicals in our residential gardens will make for a healthier home, and life.
