We're Green - Alladin's Mission Landscaping

We're Green!

Alladins Landscape Design makes every effort to be environmentally responsible in everything we do. This includes the equipment we use, the products that we suggest and the way we approach each job. In an effort to reduce the carbon footprint and be mindful of our environment, we suggest plants that require less water and maintenance. In addition to this we use:

  • Vehicles that have flex-fuel technology
  • Newer equipment that produces fewer emissions
  • Manual tools whenever possible because we understand the impact power equipment has on the environment
  • Spill resistant jerry cans

Information on how to be more environmentally responsible in the landscape:

Lawns and Plants

There are grasses and plants that are more drought, disease and insect resistant thereby reducing the dependence on irrigation systems, insecticides, and fungicides. The grasses that are available grow more slowly and require less frequent cutting which helps to reduce harmful emissions being released into the environment.

IPM (Integrated Pest Management)

The whole premise is to use natural remedies to deal with pests. These pests include all insect or diseases affecting plants. At Alladins Landscape Design, natural products and remedies are used as the first line treatment. Chemical pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are used as the very last resort.

Products

Eco friendly and recycled products are better and more readily available than ever before. The use of these types of products helps keep waste out of the landfills and unwanted chemicals out of the environment. Here are some of the many products available:

  • Organic fertilizers; natural pesticides, herbicides and fungicides
  • Rubber resurfacing product made from recycled car tires
  • Salt free de-icer
  • Drip irrigation systems for plant beds that use less water and are a more effective way of watering
  • Rain water capturing systems allowing less dependence on chlorinated water for the garden
  • Compost bins that reduce the amount of garbage going to the landfill and provide an economical organic alternative to chemical fertilizers
  • New improved solar lighting systems that harness the power of the sun and are economical to run
