Blog Post: Sustainable By Nature
Sustainability is a word commonly thought of with a grain of sand, many people do not understand that as we as a world continue to higher environmental footprint we must look for various avenues to make changes to strengthen our environment.
This week I would like to spotlight the Company “Sustainable by Nature”. This company, based out of Springfield work to create landscapes that are good for the environment. Sustainable by Nature, known for its work in the Ozarks for helping families and organizations create landscapes and gardens that are not only beautiful but also functional, and productive.
According to the SBN website, the company started from a passion of food, sustainability, and breaking the norms. Their passion for working with the soil and giving it the love it needs to grow the best crop. The sustainability concept comes from the notion that planting a tree is good, but planting a tree that bares fruit is even better. Planting trees is only a small fraction of the masterpieces they create with landscapes. SBN provides 6 specific landscaping services:
Edible Landscapes & Gardens
They design gardens to match your families or business’s needs. Use some of your outdoor space to nourish your loved ones and keep it looking nice. They will even help you grow it.
At SbN they focus on healthy ecology and diversity. They talk about how they want a space where beneficial insects and beautiful wildlife exist. Typical landscapes focus on aesthetics and end up using an inefficient amount of resources. They strive to create spaces that are pleasing to the eye AND the environment.
these are spaces where you can sit down, relax, and enjoy your space with loved ones. Hardscapes are designed to fit naturally into a landscape. Thinking about things such as water run off and natural walking paths. Blending it into the environment.
Instead of trying to push off all of the water on the property like a traditional landscaping design, they try and keep as much water on your property as possible. This most natural resource helps your landscape sustain itself as well as the future of our city. They believe each property should have its own water table.
