Green Remodeling Ideas for Your Outdoor Space
While going green for indoor renovations and weekend projects may not be a new concept for you, going green out on the patio may very well be. Did you know that there are many lovely ways to create a green and environmentally friendly outdoor space for your patio that is no less enjoyable than traditional and standard patio projects?
Green remodeling ideas are abundant for inside the home, but nowadays green patios are the next new thing. You might even say green patios are to the environment what black is to fashion. Regardless of where you live, you can always find a way to incorporate green goods into your indoor and outdoor lifestyle, as well.
Going Green Literally
If you think about going green, you probably associate this with buying all types of building materials that are refurbished, repurposed, and without toxic chemicals and fumes. However, have you ever considered how simple it all is when going green?
Mother Nature provides us with everything we need to go green, for example, plants and vegetations. Plants provide necessary oxygen for our survival, as it helps us cleanse impurities from the air and provides us with good clean air. So why not incorporate natural greens into your patio living space?
You do not have to have an acre of land in order to achieve this goal. Potted plants, tall palms, and even flowers are all a contribution to the environment in a positive way. Also, a vegetable garden allows you to continue the cycle of keeping the environment clean and safe while providing toxin free foods to you and your family.
Small Space? No Worries
If you are tight for space on your patio, you do not have to worry that you will be left out of the going green trend. You can always start and grow a small herb garden. You can begin by creating the smallest of patches for your herb garden or, better yet, you can cultivate herbs from small individual pots.
This saves time, money, energy. If you are making a special recipe and do not have a certain herb, there is no need to drive to the store and waste renewable resources. Simply step out onto your patio and pick your herbs.One of our latest remodeling projects: an efficient sunroom
Green Building Materials
When it comes to going green, there is no stone left unturned. There are dozens of renewable resources at your fingertips. Repurposed and refurbished wood is just one example of a renewable resource available for your green patio.
Recycled glass for mosaic table tops is another renewable source of green materials. Bamboo and wicker are excellent choices for an outdoor patio, as well.
