Landscape Design Themes – Edible Landscaping
Edible Landscaping in Greater Sacramento
When you imagine a beautiful landscape design, you probably picture flowers and plants that turn your backyard into an outdoor oasis. But what if you could also walk outside, pick a leaf, flower, or fruit off of any plant you want, and eat it?
If you can dream it, we can create it, which is why if you’ve always wanted an edible landscape design, we can create it for you at FiveSTAR Landscape.
The Incredible Value of an Edible Landscape Design
The cost of food is rising, and the need for better, fresher nutrition is at an all-time high. Science has shown that most fruits and vegetables lose half of their nutritional value within a few hours after being picked, meaning that the vegetables you buy in the grocery store aren’t as healthy as they could be. Frozen fruits and vegetables retain that value, but they are harder to cook with.
With an edible backyard, you’re able to pick anything you want and immediately place it in food. This gives you more nutritional value, and turns your landscape into a beautiful design that works for you. Not only can you plant traditional foods like artichoke, spinach, and blackberries. You can also plant edible wild foliage, such as:
- Monkey Flower
- Garlic Mustard and More
Some of these edible plants are native to the Greater Sacramento area as well, which means they’ll be easier to maintain. As more and more families look for unique and fun ways to build their yards, an edible landscape may be just what you need to give your property an incredible upgrade.
