As the society is more inclined towards fresh and healthy food, local, and organic gardening, as well as the green movement in general, people are becoming more and more interested in sustainable gardening. A sustainable garden means one that can be sustained over time taking care of environmental issues. While creating a garden everyone should approach it in the same way: with an eye towards creating a sustainable outdoor space that not only adds beauty to your life, but also enriches the planet that supports us all. Sustainable gardens and landscapes are important because they help prevent soil and water erosion, are drought and cold resistant and are naturally resistant to many pests and diseases, which can decrease maintenance, labor and expenses. Sustainable gardening aims to reduce energy use, conserve water, maintain healthy soils, reduce material going into landfills, protect local wildlife, and keep invasive plant species out of the garden and area.  Sustainable gardens are created in a number of different ways. Using reclaimed materials, such as old railway sleepers, has a much lower impact on the environment compared to using new or modern materials, like non-biodegradable plastics. Introducing reclaimed materials can also add an authentic and rustic finish to your garden, which helps incorporate character to your outdoor space. Once you have created a sustainable garden, it’s important to maintain it as eco-friendly as possible. Instead of using water from a mains supply, you should feed your plants via a separate water duct that collects rain water, which is economical during the dry seasons. If you have a small lawn, using a manual grass cutter rather than an electric or petrol powered lawn mower will help reduce you carbon footprint furthermore. When saving water and materials not only means  saving money, but also saving the environment, there’s no denying that living sustainably can save some green, in more ways than one.
