4 Tips for "Green" Gardening from Avant Garden Decor

Gardeners can help the environment even more with a "Green" plan for their flower and vegetable gardening with a few helpful habits

PHILADELPHIA, April 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- What can be more natural and beneficial to the earth and the environment than Green Gardening? When gardeners use eco-friendly gardening techniques, they can get better results and save their gardens from damage done by chemicals.

A few simple gardening habits are all it takes to get started on the journey to "Green."

1.) Efficient Watering: Cut down on water evaporation and waste by watering your gardens in the early morning or evening. Apply mulch to your garden beds to retain water moisture in your plants while also decreasing weed growth.

2.) Say Goodbye to Chemicals: Get rid of pesticides and chemical fertilizers and instead turn to organic weed killers and compost. Safer Brand has a line of organic products that is well-loved by gardeners for its effectiveness, in addition to its organic attributes. Most Safer Brand products are OMRI approved. Safer Brand EndALL kills over 40 different plant-attacking insects while keeping the environment safe. (http://www.avantgardendecor.com/store/insect-controls/b5102)

3.) Composting Made Easy: The hero in "Green" Gardening is the compost pile. By using leaves, grass clippings, fruit and vegetable skins, you can make compost and give your gardens a nutritional super-sized meal. This will not only cut down on waste and save money on expensive fertilizers, but will also enhance the soil with all necessary nutrients.

Start the composting process with Ringer Compost Plus Compost Maker, which uses a range of natural microorganisms to aid in material breakdown. In particular, Ringer Compost Plus combines thermophilic organisms that work at higher temperatures and contains specially designed nutrient sources that start the compost process more quickly and efficiently.(http://www.avantgardendecor.com/store/composting/2b3050)

4.) "Green" Hanging Flower Baskets: Flower gardening can get in on the "Green" movement as well when gardeners use the EcoLiner for their flower baskets and pots. EcoLiner is made with recycled materials and has higher water retention than traditionally used coco liners. In addition, the smoother lining of the EcoLiner gives flower gardeners a new and elegant look for their potted flowers. In addition to its eco-friendly attributes, it has the added benefit of being "Made in the USA." (http://www.avantgardendecor.com/store/ecoliner/plb14)

These four, simple gardening habits are easy for every gardener to embrace as part of a "Green" gardening plan. By putting these tips into practice, the environment will be one step closer to sustainability for future generations.
