We’ve been servicing our community for more than 15 years and over that time we’ve learned a thing or two about sustainable landscaping! Continue reading to learn more and contact Michaelangelo’s Sustainable Landscape and Design Group for all of your lawn care needs!

What is Sustainable Landscaping?

Sustainable landscaping is a way of creating beautiful landscaping that is self-sustaining and lets nature do the heavy lifting. It means choosing plants that are native to the air and work well with the soil. Good sustainable landscape works with nature, not against it, and that means that you will have less overall lawn care to do after we finish designing your yard!

Benefits of Sustainable Landscaping

There are many benefits of sustainable landscaping, the number one being that this type of landscaping is good for the environment. It turns out that being good for the environment also means that it’s good for you and your family as well! Here at Michaelangelo’s Sustainable Landscape and Design Group, we use organic supplements that are good for your health and the health of your lawn. 

Sustainable landscaping is also cost-effective because the plants need less maintenance over time. Sustainable landscaping uses native plants and trees with their own defenses against the types of pests we have here in Atlanta, which means that they don’t need harsh pesticides to thrive. 

Maintain Sustainability

One of the services we offer our Atlanta clients is turf care, which means that we will keep your lawn lush throughout the year. While sustainable landscaping is definitely more durable than traditional landscaping, no landscape is totally maintenance-free. When you hire Michaelangelo’s Sustainable Landscape and Design Group for lawn care, you can trust that the care you receive is sustainable and eco-friendly. 

We maintain sustainability by using eco-friendly fertilizers and non-toxic pesticides. After a tough summer or winter, we can help get your yard back to its peak condition. We also provide core aeration, which allows for air, water, and other nutrients to penetrate all the way down to the grassroots.  

Other Green Practices

Many of our clients are inspired to do their own lawn care after we create a beautiful landscape design for them. If you’d like to move beyond sustainable landscaping into other green practices, here are a few we recommend trying:

Composting 

There are several methods that you can use for backyard composting. The three main types include recycling grass clippings, using worms to facilitate decomposition, and backyard composting. Composting doesn’t take up much space and helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

Organic Gardening 

Starting a garden in your backyard is a great way to connect to the earth and decompress from the stress of daily life. If you also choose to compost, you can use the soil that you make to fertilize your garden. There’s nothing better than eating something that you’ve grown on your own, even if it’s just a couple cherry tomatoes and some basil!
