Sustainable Garden Ideas By Design From The Urbane Professionals

Sustainable Garden Ideas Image 3The Urbane Design Team presents the key points to making sustainable garden ideas work. They’re viable, easy and successful.

Among many other domains, a professional landscaping designer is trained in organic gardening ‘green’ practices and sustainability.

Well known Colleges and Universities, such as Olds College and Lakeland College are ranked with the best for teaching sustainable garden ideas technology. Many members from the Urbane Landscaping Designer Team have graduated from these fine educational institutions.

Sustainable Garden Ideas Image 5Many people desire growing their own food. But they don’t know where to begin. Or, how to go about making it sustainable for that matter.

Our key sustainable garden ideas points may help you achieve higher standards.

The Sustainable Garden Ideas Technology and Science of it is called Foodscaping. It’s what everyone should be doing in every neighborhood. In Canada, the USA, Mexico and around the world, there’s room for improvement, when it comes to sustainable garden ideas.

These days, people’s homes in modern metro areas are more ornamental than productive. Why not make your yard not only beautiful, but functional and food-producing at the same time?

With the right sustainable garden ideas put into practice, it’s easy.

A Quality Landscaping Designer Helps With Sustainable Garden Ideas

Sustainable Garden Ideas Image 6Rural properties on the other hand have long been food producers. By the very nature of their occupants, sustainable garden ideas are put into practice.

Although often desirous to do so, by and large, ‘city folk’ don’t have the background or upbringing.

Whereas, most ‘country folk’ have been taught at a very early age, how to garden and grow their own food. Many didn’t even realize that in the process, they were perfecting sustainable garden ideas!

In speaking with Freyja Prit, a top-producing Real Estate Agent at Re/Max in Vancouver, BC, she says, “I can’t imagine why more people don’t do so.  Today’s home buyers seem to react very positively to the concept of seeding and reaping their own foodstuffs, but that is about as far as it goes.” She also believes it is largely because most people just don’t have the knowledge. Visit Freyja’s Blog for lots of great information about local Vancouver Real Estate.

Foodscaping – Used in Sustainable Garden Ideas Design

Sustainable Garden Ideas Image 4Foodscaping is a form of landscaping. Often it’s called or referred to as ‘sustainable landscaping’.

Therein, a property owner designates and plans a part of the yard for a garden. Usually, viable sustainable garden ideas are incorporated. Fresh produce is easily grown for family usage.

But it goes way beyond that as well. Often, old materials, such as rain-gutters, or plastic PVC pipe are reused.

Early forms of Foodscaping originate back to the days of our rural ancestors. The neighbors would all get together and decide how much land was going to be allocated to growing their own food.

In many cases, it was also decided who would grow what. Duplication was minimized and trading ensued. Probably back in those days there was no trained landscaping designer to assist. Nevertheless, many great sustainable garden ideas were developed and utilized.

Likely at the time, people didn’t even realize they were doing it. Sustainable garden ideas and practices were just a way of life. An economical way of feeding large families. A means of survival.

Over the generations as the metro areas grew, people lost their way with food growing. Along with that went the knowledge of how to do it.

Sustainable Garden Practices Are Returning

Sustainable Garden Ideas Image 7In today’s more ‘earth-friendly’ and conscious society with ‘green this’ and green that’, a more healthy lifestyle is desired. Fears of pesticide contamination, global warming, pollution and so on, rekindle a growing demand for these nearly lost arts to be revived from the dead.

In fact, several prestigious Vocational Colleges & Universities including Cornell University, are teaching courses on sustainability and organic food growing. Although they may have some sustainable garden ideas floating about their head, obviously not everybody can go back to university, to learn how to grow vegetables and chickens in their back yards.

That’s where the Urbane landscaping designer teams can come into play. They can design it utilizing state-of-the-art sustainable garden ideas and practices. Then, build it. All the homeowner has to do is plant the seeds and reap the harvests.

A potential roadblock of course, are the Municipal regulators. They tend to always counter-attack any notion that doesn’t quite fit their guidelines. The problem is that most of the time, those guidelines are outdated and sometimes years behind.

Government of any sort is very slow to move. Unless of course you owe them money! Incorporating sustainable garden ideas in metro neighborhoods, is no exception.

Self-Sustaining Neighborhood Produces Its Own Power And Food

Sustainable Garden Ideas Image 8But we must overcome these, by planning and developing living communities at the outset that are geared toward sustainable, organic food production. The Urbane Team of Experts has developed and uses our patented, trademarked, technology called ‘OLE!‘ (Optimized Lifestyle Enhancement).

If new communities planned for it in the first place, it wouldn’t become the problem we face today. Little by little, residents would again recover, learn, teach and pass on the know-how. These communities would reduce their reliance on non-renewable resources in the process. Gradually going ‘truly green’, instead of it being only partial or just a fad, would become the world-model.

Have a look at this recent video. It will really open up your eyes. Your perception on sustainable garden ideas, living practices and ‘earth-friendly’ notions will change, once you do. Change is here. Today and now.

Slowly, it would catch on, spread, and be made to work. As an example, it has and is working in Okotoks, Alberta. Visit Drakes Landing Solar Community next time you are out that way.

See for yourself that sustainable living is real, viable and completely doable. So is incorporating sustainable garden ideas to produce your own food. Take a step back and think about what we’re being told today!

Certain Landscape Architectural Designers Are Trained To Focus On Sustainable Garden Ideas Planning

Sustainable Garden Ideas Image 9If we are going to listen to the sustainability preaching, shouldn’t we also be ensuring our foodstuffs are organically grown at home? At least some of it? And should it not be ‘truly’ organic, if we want to live healthier lifestyles? Ask our Architectural Landscaping Designer Team.

But, we don’t want an ‘ugly neighborhood’, you say! The Urbane Construction & Design Group has developed and continually advances with technologies, which are cutting-edge.

These do not take away from the esthetics of your yard or the neighborhood. The whole concept is referred to as OLE! 

Speak with an Architectural Landscaping Designer at our Firm, to learn more about this amazing concept.

The foregoing barely scratch the surface. However, these, in conjunction with eco-friendly homes and foodscapes are being received well over the past 20 years. There are many more we haven’t even mentioned yet. And, we’ve managed to overcome many of the bylaws in existing neighborhoods, as well. Many answers are a just phone call or email away.

It all begins with our Landscaping Architectural Designer Team. It involves a corporate culture. A unified team belief system.

Don’t Be Fooled By The Hype Fed To The Public About Sustainable Garden Ideas Not Being Worth The Cost

Imagine if we did this in Canada, the USA, Mexico and Latin America!  Our commute to get fresh produce, would be about 50 feet. We would be certain that the produce we are getting, is a truly ‘organic product’, rather than the over-priced fakes, we get in most grocery stores today.

Because organic growing and gardening is not strictly regulated, but rather advertised by retailers as a ‘selling gimmick, often you are paying a premium price for something that is very ordinary and perhaps even a GMO. Just like ‘bottled water’ is advertised as coming from a mountain spring. Many times it has been proven, that the reality is that’s it’s ran through a filter and originates from an ordinary City water-tap! Sadly, both are often nothing more than ‘marketing gimmicks’. It’s tough to get the truth unraveled.

Unless you have tested soil and no neighbors, you are likely not getting organic products at the local supermarket. Due to all sorts of collateral pollutants, even buying direct from a Farmer often guarantees little, in terms of ‘organically grown’. In view of all that, it makes sense to incorporate your own sustainable garden ideas in your plot of land.

Stumped On Where To Start With The Incorporation Of Sustainable Garden Ideas?

As we move away from non-renewable energy, and more toward recycling, sustainable living and organic gardening in the future, greater purity is going to become a fact of life.

Just as an example of more ‘user-friendly’ living; doorknobs have been recently banned in the City of Vancouver. Many types of light bulbs are banned throughout Canada by the Federal Government. DDT is gone along with many other pesticides. And it will get even more strict folks! There is a lot of pressure on huge companies like Monsanto. People are joining a ‘purity movement’ because they’re sick of being slowly poisoned. They’re discovering that life on earth is indeed enjoyable. As such, they want to be here as long as possible.

Although LEEDs is not fully yet perfected, it has come a long way in reduced water and energy consumption, among other things. The Urbane Group has been working on various sustainable technologies for over 20 years. We have the ability to design and build sustainable homes. Organic and sustainable landscapes are included through more pure, earth-friendly garden ideas. Are you trained and up to date in sustainable technologies?

For example, imagine never having to buy carrots, onions, garlic, tomatoes, cucumbers or herbs, ever again. Instead, have your own delicious home-grown vegetables. With sustainable garden ideas, practices and Foodscaping, it is a reality and completely doable! And, what about NO Utility Bills ever again? Another bonus that’s completely achievable!
