Green Building Site & Landscaping

Green Landscaping Resource

Good green landscaping doesn't have much to do with hydro-seeding a lawn when construction is complete. Landscaping for green homes involves:

careful assessment of what's on the site a construction plan that minimizes disruption to natural features and vegetation an emphasis on native plants that work in harmony with the house

See Chapter 16 on Landscaping in the Green from the Ground Up book for more details or contact us about training .

Green Site & Landscaper's Transition Guide

Preserve existing mature trees whenever possible

Existing trees can provide shade which saves on energy bills. Trees help control soil erosion and increase property value. Construct a temporary fence around the drip line of the tree to protect the root system. Preserve and nourish existing mature plants on site.

Plant deciduous trees on the south side of the home

Deciduous trees provide shade in the summer, but allow sunlight to heat the home during the winter. Determine which species are appropriate for your climate. Keep trees at least 15 feet from south wall. Many deciduous trees are suitable but climate specific.

Plant coniferous trees on the side of prevailing winter winds

Coniferous trees help block prevailing winds all year. This will help cut energy loads by reducing air-infiltration. These trees are hardy and grow well in all climates

Use organic mulch in flower and tree beds

Organic mulch is safer and more environmentally friendly than inorganic material. It supplies nutrients and reduces weed growth.

Use a minimum of 2-3 inches of mulch.

This mulch should be available at your local garden store. If not, contact a local manufacturer and request that they carry it.

Plant native grasses and plants

Native grasses and plants use less water

Invasive species should be removed from the site.

Talk to your local nursery about appropriate species for your climate zone to replace bluegrass

Install drip irrigation

Regular sprinklers waste a lot of water through evaporation and spray indiscriminately. Drip irrigation applies water to the soil at the plant root at the rate that the soil can absorb it. Determine water requirements for the species planted. Group plants by similar water needs. Use a rain sensor when possible

Install a rainwater collection system

Rainwater can be gathered, stored and then used as needed in either an above-ground cistern or underground tank.

The project can be as simple as a large barrel with a lid  placed at the end of a gutter.

The cistern can have a spigot that can be connected to a hose for ease of use.

Consider using gravel or permeable paving instead of asphalt

Impervious ground covering like pavement leads to water runoff which clogs storm sewers and in-turn pollutes rivers or other water sources.

The earth acts as a natural filter. If rainwater is not given the opportunity to be absorbed, it runs into the storm ...
