Sustainable Summer

Shady Grove

There are many ways to practice sustainable gardening in summer.  Planning ahead can create leafy environments, where plants, grouped together, and overseen by taller trees, create their own sustainability in summer.  This image was taken on a stately urban property which has it’s own recyclable water source, ensuring the areas that need it are well hydrated.  Watering is less necessary, if this kind of planning takes place, where the plants can support each other, as mentioned in David Suzuki’s book ‘Tree’ in a post a little further down.  A bit of forward planning can create less worry, and better sustainability in summer.

    The spot you photographed appears very healthy and rich in foliage. Lovely to see this in an urban setting.

    That’s a place I’d like to sit a spell. It’s nice to see that they use recyclable water, and always refreshing to see leafy things instead of postage stamp green lawns!

    Yes, Ladies, that green has something in it, so restful in natural form!
