How to Avoid Them
In This Article
▶ Knowing the nonsustainable landscaping pitfalls
▶ Avoiding resource- and money-sucking mistakes
Considering all the nonsense that’s out there about landscaping and
gardening practices, I don’t think you need to feel bad about committing
some of the gaffes listed in this chapter. After all, it’s human nature to think
that if everyone’s doing something, it must be right.
Yet many common gardening practices are foolish, and imitating them
doesn’t help anyone. If you’re wasting time and money or creating a big
environmental impact, now is the time to change your ways. A little knowledge
and willingness to change behavior can solve the majority of gardening
problems in a big hurry, with no downside and often little or no cost.
