Sustainability is everywhere, which is good news, of course. More and more people every day are becoming aware of their environmental impact; they’re becoming aware of what they can and should do to help the environment. It’s honestly pretty amazing. But with that said, eco-friendly and sustainable habits are slowly (but surely) becoming the new norm. Houses that have smart home technology and offer eco-friendly appliances (and features) are becoming highly in demand to the point where you could safely say that it’s almost an expectation.  

But when it comes to homeowners, they’re almost always looking at their house when it comes to sustainability, and not so much of their garden or their lawn in general. Sure, curb appeal is highly important, but this shouldn’t be the only aspect of your lawn; remember, it’s a way to connect with nature. 

Since your garden is a way to connect with nature (and ensure you’re meeting regulations), it’s best to also consider how you can make this sustainable too. Is it extra work? Sure, but is it worth it? Absolutely! Here are some reasons why an eco-friendly garden can also help boost the value of your home!

Environmentally-Friendly Lawns and Gardens are High in Demand

As stated above, home buyers aren’t only looking into owning an eco-friendly house, but they want all aspects of their home to be sustainable, and this includes the shed bases for their shed too. They’re higher in demand, and for the most part, it’s pretty easy to do and to create. 

It’s really about having a happy and friendly garden where wildlife can thrive, how and where water can be collected, no concrete (or not much of it), and using sustainable materials for the deck, shed, fence, and so on. They’re high in demand, making your home more valuable, and they’re easy to create, allowing you to save money. You can safely say it’s a win-win!

Better for Health

A happy home is essentially linked to better health, but you can say the same for the garden. Essentially, it’s the entire property that can help boost help. People like to go outside to exercise, get a breath of fresh air, to feel happier, to ease up on stress, and so on. It’s refreshing to say the least. If a garden isn’t sustainable, such as a lack of wildlife and a lack of plants, it can feel constricting and, for some, feel uncomfortable. Embrace walking on the grass and embrace fragrant flowers; they make the garden look beautiful but can help you feel healthier too.

Less Maintenance

Now, when it comes to an eco-friendly garden or gardening in general, there’s the idea of a lot of maintenance, right? One reason why so many people flock to having their gardens covered in brick and concrete is mostly to just have as little maintenance as possible.  But in the end, it’s actually a lot of maintenance; you need to pressure wash it, try to remove grass from the crevices, and so on. But with an eco-friendly garden, you’re embracing nature, the wildlife, the wild flowers, and so on. This is perfect for insects, and a lot of homebuyers see this.
