Little actions that go a long way
Natives, tick all the boxes for a sustainable garden. Native plants are readily available, cost effective both in purchase as well as maintenance and they quickly fill spaces to improve complex aesthetics.
Use of a composter
Composters provide quick opportunities to begin reducing daily waste. The by product of composters can then be used to fertilise your complex. This makes it another green but cost-effective complex improvement.
Get the most out of your sprinkler
Being selective in both the times and sort of sprinklers you use can have a big impact. Watering during the morning has the best results, whilst being concious of watering less or not at all during cooler weather can save you across the year.
Incorporating vertical gardens is a growing trend in complexes, one that makes the most of available space and can provide greenery to locations that were not possible before.
It’s all about starting a conversation
Being proactive in your scheme provides an opportunity that not only improves the functionality of your space but starts developing a sense of community with a common interest.
