The desire to be sustainable is something that is becoming quite common among consumers. One area that often gets targeted as being particularly wasteful is a home’s landscape but it doesn’t have to be this way.
There are a number of ways you can help your customers reduce waste, conserve energy and save water. However, not every homeowner wants to simply let a landscaping company do everything for them. If you have clients who have do-it-yourself inclinations and they are wanting to work on their water conservation, discuss the possibility of xeriscaping with them.
“Xeriscaping means you’re conserving water,” says Bodie Pennisi, a professor and extension landscape specialist at the University of Georgia. “We’re talking about beautiful, healthy, functional landscapes that use little water, no matter where you live.”
If some of your customers want to take a crack at xeriscaping on their own, share this infographic with them to get them on the right track with these basic steps and plant suggestions.
