Eco-garden

Why ECO?

The Eco-garden created according to principles of permaculture is one of the most significant elements of a whole concept of the Beautiful Settlements. Nowadays we can see that minimum attention is paid to planting when dealing with issues of living. Houses in individual built-up areas tend to have modern gardens, with decorative and exotic trees and bushes, with a loan neatly cut. Though the gardens are nice at first sight, they bring more work than joy to their owners.

Paradox of modern times is reflected in the following witty story download here that we borrowed from the book by Jaroslav Svoboda.

We wish for healthy and quality food. We can have it if we start to grow and make it ourselves. An eco-garden of your own has several pros. Except for initial few years after its creation, the permaculture garden is not maintenance-consuming. Our home harvest has significantly higher nutrition than nobody-knows-how-grown crops in supermarkets. When working in the garden every one becomes a creator of his own living space. Watching the seeds and plants growing slowly into fruit can bring, in addition to happiness and use, also awareness of how genius the whole universe is. Another aspect well worth mentioning is that it saves money in your wallet.
