Gardening and the Environment
If you love gardening and caring for plants, flowers and trees, you are also concerned about the environment. The things that we love are a big part of the environment. Our plants, flowers and trees all have a role in creating a healthy environment for humans. Therefore, it is equally important that we treat our plants, flowers and trees with respect and ensure that they are around for generations to come.
So, how exactly does what we do in our gardens effect the environment? It is impacted in many ways. Plants, flowers and trees help transform light into energy that others can use, they help clean the air that we breath, they clean the soil, and provide a habitat for other insects and animals. All of these are important reasons why we need to care for our environment, as well as properly care for our plants, flowers and trees.
There are a number of ways that we are gardeners can help with the environment, right in our own backyards. First, properly care for your garden. Make sure that your garden has the proper amount of water, either naturally from rain or from watering it with a hose. By ensuring your garden has a correct amount of water will make sure that it will be growing properly and be healthy. Secondly, care for your soil.

The addition of compost to your lawn or garden can be very beneficial by adding nutrients to the soil, which in turn will aid in the growth. Plus, by composting you are taking trash and naturally using it in your gardening. Plus, composting is an easy way at home to recycle common household items.
