When it comes to landscaping projects, it's essential to be aware of the environmental impact of our actions. The excessive use of pesticides has been linked to a decrease in the number of bees, bats, and frogs, as well as an increase in cancer risk. In the past decade, we have become increasingly aware of how our activities can affect the Earth. From the cars we drive to the type of food we buy, these decisions can have consequences.
When it comes to landscaping projects, it's important to select a responsible and qualified landscape contractor.
Landscape contractors have different areas of expertise, but all should be insured and have the necessary licenses. It's also a good idea to get a copy of the garden plans ahead of time, so there's no confusion about the project's requirements. Making a conscious decision to avoid harmful gardening practices in your garden may seem difficult, but you can still have a beautiful landscape that benefits the environment.
Your landscape contractor will be able to help you understand what's possible with your budget, but it's important to have a budget in mind. Even if your contractor doesn't need a license, they may have certain professional certifications from the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) or the Professional Earth Care Network (PLANET).
