Green-scaping – Eco-friendly Landscaping Tips

Provided By: 

Not only is it unwise from a customer expectation standpoint, landscaping with non-native plants is more difficult, requires more resources, and runs counter intuitive to the local experience you bring to your guests. Native plants are beautiful, hardy, and once established, require less maintenance than a conventional lawn. Native flowers and grasses also function much like a natural system, with diverse plants providing food and shelter for a host of birds, butterflies and beneficial insects. What camper wouldn't enjoy that?

From a small patch of native wildflowers to simply planning, pruning, and caring for your natural landscaping (otherwise known as beneficial landscaping) with a little groundwork, you can extend your "green" commitment throughout your park. And what could be more natural than that for an industry that survives via the great, green outdoors.

While traditional landscaping tends to usurp clean air, contributes to watershed contamination, and plays a role in air pollution, the wise use of beneficial landscaping practices can save money and time and give you "gone green" bragging rights.

Here are a few tips to help your "greenscape" from our friends at the EPA's Resource Conservation Challenge:

        Most trees and shrubs get all the nutrients they need from the soil.

          But annual plants, vegetable gardens, and lawns sometimes need

          additional nutrients from a fertilizer. When shopping for fertilizer, look for a

          product that contains "natural organic" or "slow-release" ingredients.

          Unlike "quick-release" fertilizers, "natural organic" or "slow-release"

          fertilizers feed your plants slowly and evenly. The result? Healthier

          plants withstrong root systems and no excessive "top growth"– saving

          you time and money. Improper use of fertilizers can damage

          beneficial soil life essential for healthy plants.

        Select plants that grow well in your area of the country and fit the

          amount of sun, type of soil, and water available in your yard. In general, it

          makes sense to use low-water plants to save yourself or your staff the time

          and expense of watering.

        Choose indigenous pest- and disease-resistant plant varieties ...
