Making the best use of your resources is definitely sustainable thinking, and while it might seem silly, the old adage of “if you don’t plan to succeed, you plan to fail” can’t be overemphasized when it comes to going green in your garden and landscape. We all want to see things happen in a hurry, but nature’s ways are worth paying attention to first.
Nothing is more frustrating than putting in a lot of money, time and energy into your garden and landscape only to have poor results. Green gardening doesn’t just happen, and planning for the necessary requirements for your project insures that you have a head start for a bountiful garden and landscape.
Consider the available sun, water, soil, space, time and money, then plan to work within your constraints.
