If you could reduce your budget by conserving water and energy would you do it? The answer for any business owner or property manager would immediately be yes. For most businesses, all decisions eventually come down to budget so when you hear that you can be saving money, the interest is peaked. Now, what if you could reduce your budget and your carbon footprint with commercial sustainable landscaping?

Using commercial sustainable landscaping smart tactics to reduce your water use, electricity use and your businesses carbon footprint can help you save!

Here’s how:

  1. There are many options for irrigation that can help to reduce water use. If you have an old irrigation system, have it checked by a professional to make sure there are no leaks. You could be losing water into the earth that you aren’t even aware of.
  2. Using native plants that already flourish in the environment can help too. When you bring in plants that are not native to the area, they may require a different watering schedule than other plants and will require more attention and feeding to thrive in an environment other than their own. 
  3. Installing a rain garden is helpful for commercial properties dealing with stormwater runoff. Rain gardens are depressions designed to absorb rainfall and runoff. They can help to reduce water usage by collecting it and feeding the plants chosen for that area. This also helps to coax water away from your foundation walls, in turn, keeping your building safe from the damage of rainwater.
