Natural gardening techniques for a clean and healthy environment

Gardening and landscaping are two fields that have evolved a great deal over the past few decades. These days, we tend to promote natural gardening practices out of respect for the environment. For example:

  • Perform a soil analysis to understand the composition and quality of your soil.
  • Choose plants according to the type of soil you have.
  • Use compost (either commercial or from your own kitchen) to amend your soil.
  • Collect and use rain water for watering.
  • Promote companion planting and prune your plants to control disease and pest insects.
  • Welcome biodiversity into your own home.
  • Install winter protection.

Also included in sound horticultural practice? The choice and proper maintenance of your tools. Happy gardening!
