Hardscaping New York

Swap Out the Grass
The grass is one of the usual yard covers. However, the grass requires a lot of water and hard work to maintain. To reduce the work, hardscape such as pavers and rocks are trending. The grass is being swapped out for the hardscape and low maintenance ground covers. The trending hardscape uses less energy, less resources, and your lawn will stay gorgeous with constant maintenance.

Plant More Trees
Trees are one element that provides a lot without giving too much back in return. They purify the air, provide shade and make sure that there is less erosion in the ground. Planting a tree is quite easy and once planted they don’t take a lot of maintenance and work.

Start a Compost Pile
Majority of people consider composting as something that takes too much of effort. Composting is one of the most eco-friendly processes. The majority of kitchen scraps such as vegetable skins, fruits, and core can easily be composted. Yard waste such as leaves also can also be easily composted and turned into mulch.

Get a Rain Barrel
Another way to save the resources is to add a rain barrel. A rain barrel catches the rainwater to be reused to water the garden. This way you’ll be helping the environment along with saving money. Another way to save water is by doing in the coolest part of the day! If the plants are watered in the hottest part of the day, the water will evaporate quickly before plants can use it.

Use Fewer Chemicals
The main problem with landscaping is often the number of chemicals that are used. Natural fertilizers such as composting works wonder.
