Businesses and individuals can both take advantage of the benefits of sustainable landscaping. Here is a look at what green landscaping can deliver to your home or corporate headquarters.
While you may be paying for new features upfront, you will notice long-term financial benefits with a reduced need for maintenance. Plus, utility costs are driven down by the recycling of storm water, which can be reused in irrigation systems.
Reduced environmental impact
Using native plants and recycling water will help lower your business’s carbon footprint and will also help to improve local air quality. Native plants don’t require many changes to the natural landscape, so you can plant them with ease and expect them to continue growing season after season.
Better community health
The reduced need for pesticides in a sustainable landscape featuring local plants will contribute to the health of the community by keeping the water supply cleaner and reducing the chances of contaminating local soil. Rerouting storm water with your landscape is also highly valuable for community health in the Chicago area, because storm and sewer drains are connected. When flooding is reduced, there is not a risk for water contamination from residential floods.
