Landscapes are sustainable if they are in harmony with local climatic and ecological conditions. Careful plant selection, good planning, soil preparation and effective irrigation are key factors in the implementation of a sustainable landscape. There is a growing tendency in landscape design towards more ethical choices when it comes to plant and material selection. The advantages are clear: sustainable landscapes are healthier and they last longer without requiring considerable resources or maintenance.
