Gastonia Landscaping Low Impact Landscaping
Landscaping can require significant energy consumption at all levels, from the quarrying, processing and manufacturing of materials, transport, and construction to the use of water, electricity and horticultural chemicals.
Another import piece of accomplishing a low impact or eco-friendly landscape is the ability to blend with the existing eco system and climate by taking the natural patterns of precipitation, drainage, sun, and wind into account as well as seasonal change, indigenous plants, and wildlife
WhenGastonia Landscaping Gastonia designers as William Scott Pruitt create a landscape plan they start by identifying and locating existing microclimates on a site. Each site has its own microclimates. These result from the site conditions including; site orientation, house location, house size, topography, drainage patterns, amount and location of existing plant materials. For example -- south side = most sun exposure; east side = most moderate of all zones; north side = coldest, shadiest, dampest; west side = morning shade afternoon sun.
Once we have the microclimates established, we can better choose site material. Plants fulfill a number of valuable functions in a landscape outside of being aesthetically pleasing. Using native plant material is best for establishing a low impact landscape and is recommended for a many reasons. First off, they grow better because they have naturally acclimated to the existing climate and conditions of the region, therefore normally do not need special care. They require less time and energy to maintain their health and vigor in comparison to exotics. The final plus to using native plants is that they can visually tie into the existing character of a region.
Fertilizers applied to lawns to make them grow vigorously are also potentially detrimental to the environment at large. They can be carried away during a rainstorm and end up in nearby streams and rivers, where the added nutrients cause algae and other aquatic plants to dramatically grow.

Grass space on a residential site is a given. It's just important to be aware of how it can best be managed. Pesticides should be used sparingly, if at all. Instead, use organic fertilizers, which are derived from manure or sewage treatment processes. These are preferred because of their low phosphate and nitrogen levels.
Lawn areas are desirable and functional, especially when they are used for recreational purposes, like playing catch or as an outdoor play space. Our design team at Gastonia Landscaping Gastonia will asWilliam Scott Pruittand Manny Vaz who have worked together since 2008 discuss and study your needs for recreational grass space and help you determine how a lawn area can best be effective for you and your family.
