The best part about greening your garden is how easy it is. Sure, you could search garden centers for the perfect chemical fertilizer, or switch to composting and get your fertilizer at home for free.
You could fill your garden with exotic flowers and fight an endless battle to keep them alive, or you could switch to native plants and spend your time enjoying your garden instead of struggling against it. Going green is not only the healthy choice, but more often than not, it’s the easiest and most affordable choice. Truly sustainable gardening is about finding simple, natural solutions, not about investing in the latest trends.
Did you know that you can recycle tea bags and grass clippings to help your garden grow? Composting is a natural way to recycle yard and kitchen waste, and can reduce the amount of trash that ends up on your curb by up to 75 percent. Growing your own produce is a great way to minimize your impact. You’ll be able to enjoy your food knowing it wasn’t grown using a bunch of unknown chemicals, and there’s nothing quite like enjoying a tomato straight from the vine.
