Green Projects You Can Do At Home

At home, there are endless things you can do in terms of your home and landscape, all which can greatly improve the amount of green it has, and the comfort of your own home! But when it comes to nice weather, forget the things you can buy in a store, and go the DIY route! This makes everything much easier, and especially more fun. Plus, who wants to have something that the house down the blog has as well? Check out these cool ideas below and start planning for your weekend!

Window Plants

We know you love plants on the ground, but next to the house can also be a great idea as well! To do this, you can take an old set of gutters and have them affixed to your home, or whatever it is you’re using it on. From there, add the dirt and plants and get to watering! This is a great way to add some color to your home — especially because you can paint the gutters and choose the color of the plants you want to hang!

Wildflowers

It’s a great idea to think about what you can do to change up the look of your flowers, especially in areas that aren’t full of foot traffic! One of these ways is to plant various wildflowers that attract insects that are good — specifically bees and butterflies. Because of this, they’ll start coming on to your property and pollinating your plants, which keeps them alive and blooming longer!

Composting

Away from your landscaping, you can set up a clean and green compost pile which helps you preserve your waste and turn it into something sustainable. It’s important to make sure that you check up on this every once in a while, and use it when necessary! This compost will turn into nutrient-rich soil which can help you keep your plants and grass alive, and provide cooler areas for the sensitive plants you’re trying to grow.

For the other projects at home, make sure you’re keeping your landscape in check and as beautiful as it deserves to be. Should you need any help with anything from simple maintenance to full-scale constructions, we’re your go-to providers!
