I want to green my entire my backyard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I want to green my entire backyard.  So there are solar lights, green friendly mulch, bamboo, recycling bins on the side of house.  I am still debating those solar patio umbrellas, I want something that I can use during the day.  I usually am inside during the night, so to spend money on something that I can realistically can only enjoy during the night seems kinda waste.

So any ideas on some better patio umbrellas that are still eco friendly?

I think it's silly to pay for solar if you're not using them at night. That's not more eco-friendly anyhow, it only is in terms of electricity savings.

There's not many eco-friendly umbrellas on the market. Here is one made with recycled materials and pvc free coating. You could also look for a hemp umbrella although it'll be expensive I'm guessing. I saw one once for $550 or so. One green choice is to go used if you can find one at a garage sale or thrift store.

I wonder if finding something second hand is the greenest solution here...maybe on Craigslist or Freecycle? When I can't find an eco-friendly product in my price range, those are always my go-tos.

You can even spray paint the ones you don't like the look of and make a color coordinated collection of your motley crew of planters. A couple tips to keep in mind will help make your garden grow beautifully:

Thanks for sharing nice information thriugh your forum for maintaining backyard green.All the things that you have mentioned here are very effective. I also want to add some here that use the Organic - Biodegradable Seed in your bacyard. These are 100% Organic and 100% biodegradable. These green organic products have no plastic pots left over to fill a landfill. So there is no negative effect on environment also.
