Eco-Friendly Landscaping Solutions

Do you dream of a flourishing garden that’s not only beautiful but kind to the environment? Creating an eco-friendly garden is our way to help the planet! While composting and using organic fertilizers are widely recognized as sustainable practices, there’s a wealth of lesser-known methods that can contribute to the creation of a truly eco-friendly garden paradise. Here at The Landscape Market, we are deeply passionate about offering sustainable gardening solutions, and we’re excited to share some hidden gems with you to help elevate your garden’s eco-credentials! 

Harness the Power of Guilds: Forget about monoculture! Embrace the concept of companion planting, where specific plants work together to support and benefit each other. Take it a step further with guilds – a diverse and intentional group of plants that form symbiotic relationships, creating a mutually beneficial growing environment. An example of this is planting nitrogen-fixing legumes like peas near heavy feeders like tomatoes to enhance the overall health and productivity of the plants naturally.

Embrace the Wonderful World of Worm Composting: Vermicomposting, also known as worm composting, is a highly efficient and lesser-known method of composting. With vermicomposting, worms help break down kitchen scraps, producing nutrient-rich castings, which are essentially worm manure, that can be used to nourish your plants. This entire process takes place within a compact bin, making it a convenient and eco-friendly way to manage organic waste. 

Attract Beneficial Predators: Swap out those harmful chemicals for natural pest controllers like ladybugs, lacewings, and hoverflies. To attract these helpful insects, plant flowers with flat blooms such as dill or fennel, and create hiding spots for them, like small rock piles. 

Water Wisely with Greywater: Don’t waste leftover shower or bathwater! You can repurpose greywater, which is gently used water without harsh chemicals, to irrigate your plants effectively. However, it’s important to avoid using water with high soap content and to always check your local regulations before using greywater.

Embrace the Native Advantage: Native plants are incredible additions to any eco-friendly garden. Their natural adaptation to the local climate means they need minimal watering and provide essential support for indigenous pollinators such as butterflies and bees. 


By incorporating these hidden gems into your gardening routine, you can cultivate a thriving oasis that’s beautiful and benefits the environment. At The Landscape Market, we’re here to help you create a sustainable garden you can be proud of.
