  1. Composting: recycling organic waste to create nutrient-rich compost for soil enrichment, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers.

  2. Rainwater harvesting: collecting rainwater in barrels or cisterns to use for watering plants, reducing reliance on treated water.

  3. Permeable paving: installing permeable surfaces such as gravel, permeable pavers, or porous asphalt to reduce stormwater runoff and allow rainwater to infiltrate the soil.

  4. Native plant gardening: choosing plants that are native to the region for landscaping, which are adapted to the local climate and require less water and maintenance.

  5. Integrated pest management: using natural and environmentally friendly methods to control pests and diseases in the garden, minimizing the need for harmful pesticides.

  6. Energy-efficient lighting: using solar-powered or low-energy lighting in outdoor spaces to reduce energy consumption and light pollution.

  7. Mulching: apply organic mulch to gardens and beds to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and improve soil health without the need for chemical weed killers.
