Natural Solutions for a Beautiful Landscape
As January is the time for resolutions, it’s the perfect opportunity to reflect on ways we can consider treating our environment with care and conservation in the upcoming year. Gerbert & Sons has been committed to organic approaches to landscaping and property management since 1945. We choose environmentally-friendly organic teas and fertilizers rather than harmful chemical fertilizers to promote beautiful green lawns and healthy plantings, along with managing pests naturally without pesticides. Water conservation is an ongoing concern for our area and we install efficient irrigation systems custom designed to each property’s needs, or will update your current system with the latest innovations. Fresh layers of mulch are a natural strategy to aid in water retention, along with adding a beautiful, decorative element to your landscape.
Planting with Mother Nature in Mind
Selecting the correct trees, shrubs, and plants that are native to this area and will thrive in your yard’s specific soil type and available natural lighting, is key to reducing the amount of maintenance required to keep your property flourishing and inviting. Increase the biodiversity by adding flowers and plants that will welcome and support local wildlife, while adding color and variety to your landscape. Consider having Gerbert & Sons create raised garden beds to grow your own vegetables and herbs, making the idea of healthy eating even more “local”.
