The importance of sustainability is becoming increasingly greater and thus also more widely known. This is expressed in many different forms. From recycling to vintage furniture and from own vegetable gardens to cutting down on plastic. An eco-garden is another – increasingly popular – example. But how do you create one, and what is it exactly?
An eco-garden sounds very beautiful, promising and especially very green. This can also make it sound like a time-consuming garden project, which can make it feel like an intimidating chore. Because anyone who has been blessed with a garden knows how much time it takes to maintain it, make it thrive and, above all, keep it weed-free.
What is an eco-garden?
Don’t let the name put you off. With the right approach, an eco-garden actually takes some work off your hands. This is because such a green garden works with nature, not against it. An ecological garden is a natural garden where natural processes serve as inspiration. All this to make the garden bloom and grow as well as possible, making it an ideal place for animals and insects.
