Nature Landscape: Working with the Environment

from:

Lush, manicured lawns, flowery pathways and trimmed bushes are common elements in a landscaping design. While these elements offer beauty and interest to the setting, they may also hamper their surroundings in some cases.

Many people choose to work with the environment in order to create a sustainable nature landscape. The idea of the perfect lawn is very appealing to many of us. However, some environments simply cannot support a lush field of grass.

Sustaining a well-landscaped yard requires a lot of work, especially when the nature landscape isn’t really natural. Grass, plants and flowers require water to survive. Some locations do not offer enough rainwater to sustain these elements.

Instead of choosing plants, grasses and flowers that are not indigenous to the region, many nature landscape designers are opting for native alternatives. Following are some simple ideas to consider:

Dry Climates

Areas that are nestled in dry regions do not yield to the growth of many different forms of plant life. These include grasses commonly used for lawns. Keeping grass fresh and green in dry climates takes a lot of water, energy and resources. It also takes quite a bit of effort.

Nature landscape design is most effective when it embraces the environment in its unaffected state. Consider the work it takes to sustain a grass lawn in Las Vegas. Landscapers can put their efforts to better use by using plants that are indigenous to the region.

Beauty in Natural Landscapes

Beauty surrounds us, especially when we venture outdoors. Some of the most inspiring images come from our outside environment. Following are some simple ways to build your own nature landscape that is suitable for your region.

• Explore locations that offer an array of indigenous plants, grasses and flowers.
• Take note of which varieties appeal to your specific tastes.
• Study your options in landscaping vegetation. Find which plants are relatively simple to maintain.
• Consider fruits and vegetables. A beautiful garden filled with fresh produce is a wonderful sight. It also offers money-saving nourishment as well.
• Build your nature landscape gradually. There’s no need to rush the project. Let nature take its course.

If you insist on having a lush lawn, you may be a great candidate for artificial grass. Some of these lawns are made from recycled materials and they are ideal for creating a low maintenance outdoor space.

Embracing the plants and flowers indigenous to your region is a wonderful way to create a nature landscape. There are many options to explore right in your own backyard.
