Maintaining the Land Natures

You don't have to be a great gardener to have a great garden. Caring for a sustainable landscape should be much easier than caring for a conventional one. It's been designed with low maintenance in mind, remember?

The first year will be somewhat demanding as you nurture your new baby along to maturity, but maintenance will get much easier after that. By contrast, a conventional garden — with its many oversize plants, susceptibility to pests and diseases, and generally entropic nature — can get harder and harder to live with over time.

Even sustainable landscapes require some maintenance, but it's along the lines of removing dead flowers, picking fruit, tidying up a bit, and gently nudging things in the right direction now and then. The work is nonviolent, quiet, and fun. For more information on maintaining your sustainable landscape, flip to Chapter 20.
