Envirogreen Landscaping Sustainable, Eco – Friendly Landscapes

Wed, 11 Apr 2012 11:58:42 EST

Phoenix, AZ  April,  2012 – Envirogreen Landscaping creates eco-friendly landscapes by people who care.  Having a sustainable landscape not only saves the planet, it saves money.

At Envirogreen when it comes to sustainable landscaping, xeriscaping is only a part of the 'green' puzzle. Extensive gravel and rock use actually increases the surface temperature of the landscape exasperating the urban heat island effect.
The heat island effect (the process where pavement and concrete intensive environments, like cities, retain heat longer and have hotter temperatures than their rural counterparts) pertains to rocks and gravel  which retain heat from the sun and increase the overall temperature of Phoenix.

When we think about the desert and sustainable landscaping we should not necessarily jump to the conclusion that gravel and rocks are the best answer to reduce water consumption. Green native plants to incorporate into an urban scape is the best use for a sustainable landscape.
