Eco-Friendly Garden Styles
Eco-friendly garden styles are characterised by the emphasis on attracting and helping nature to thrive in your backyard. A primary focus is on planting – bee-attracting plants, successional blooms (flowering all year round), companion planting (natural pest control) and native planting (plants that will prosper in your geographical location). A great way to attract wildlife and insects is by adding a water feature that can also provide a tranquil focus for your garden design. If you’re building a terrace or decking, use natural or reclaimed materials. Get creative by repurposing household items for garden use, such as making plant pots out of tin cans. Use plants, hedges and trees to create natural boundaries and different garden areas where possible. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten eco-friendly garden features you’ll want to include.
