One way that you can live more sustainably is to take up organic gardening. Here are some ideas to create the perfect organic garden in your backyard:
-It's always best to use native plants that naturally thrive in your local area. A visit to a nearby park or outdoor area can give you some ideas as to what grows well around your home.
-Make soil a priority. All plant life needs nutrient-rich soil to grow. Remember that it takes time for good soil to take root. First plant short-lived annuals before you move on to long-lived perennials.
-When purchasing fertilizer, or pest-solutions, always check the label for the product ingredients. Gardening products that have a seal from the Organic Materials Review Institute have been checked for organic production, handling, and processing.
