Recognize the difference
For those who are not familiar with the topic yet, we are pleased to offer a small introduction. The difference lies in the goals. In the conventional garden, everything is subordinated to aesthetics. Also the high costs for oneself or for the nature are neglected.
Make the garden sustainable
The sustainable garden spares resources and also makes a contribution to the preservation of nature. The new technologies are also used here without being to the detriment of beauty. They offer the preservation of traditional gardening styles with few resources. Unfortunately, these are still expensive solutions that not many hobby gardeners can afford.
For this reason, one also observes a parallel development. Garden designers and owners simply put a whole new aesthetic through. Among other things, it includes the reuse of old furniture and recycling.
Do not get it so difficult
Environmental educators and promoters have committed the error of recent years to transforming sustainable gardening as a rather complicated topic. This scared off many garden owners who did not want to touch the subject.
The following prerequisites are NOT needed:
- Special terrain;
- Big area;
- Many resources.
The following simple steps lead you to the goal “Sustainable garden transformation”

You can also use exotics. Find out how they spread and if they could adversely affect other native plant and animal species.
Certain trees can be harmless in this regard, for example, when used in plant containers. Others simply have to stay in a more remote garden corner, away from other garden inmates that could adversely affect them.
Do not waste the water
There are too many methods – applied and technical that contribute to saving water. You can collect the rainwater or install a modern irrigation system. There is something for every budget. Ultimately, this will also bills smaller!
