Today the Property Care Guys did Native Landscaping in Malaga, North East of Perth
Several small gardens, part of a bigger job.
We are big on native landscaping because it supports the local West Australian environment in many ways. A major reason is that by keeping to the local flora, we are planting no invasive species. The other main supportive reason here is water saving. Any landscaping we do, we try to suggest waterwise and native. Less paving, less lawn, more native gardens will save you money in the long run and create a healthy environment around your home.
The average native landscape will consist mostly of these components: Native plants, Drip Irrigation and Mulch. Native planting over time requires less mulch and eventually none applied as time goes by because trees will mulch themselves. Drip irrigation is extremely water-wise and can be turned off once trees mature.
Won’t my trees grow too large? Not if you choose the right variety. Many natives will grow only 1-2m in height. You may find yourself with nothing to do!
