PlantNative states that The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined the estimated cost of maintenance for an average lawn is around $700 per year. This doesn't include any additional costs incurred by having things like ground covers, flowers, and shrubs. The most substantial cost of traditional landscaping is when irrigation. PlantNative estimated irrigation systems around
$10k for a half acre lot. Naturescapes do not need irrigation systems installed, they thrive with the amount of rain fall our environment provides. This means native landscapes do not add to our ongoing wasteful ways with water.
Reducing the cost of maintaining a traditional landscape and opting to go with a native landscape is something companies can be proud of. Not only is this a healthier option for people and the environment, it can potentially create more perks and benefits for their employees.
