Sustainable Landscaping Products: Benefits To The Economy and Environment

The business of landscaping industry focuses on the enhancement of the outdoor environment. Enhancement of properties involves three essential procedures. These include visualizing the aesthetic transformation of the property, integrating the functional aspect of the project, and ultimately, providing comfortable surroundings for people amidst the hustle and bustle of the daily life.

Modern-Day Landscaping Challenges

Implementing these three procedural steps is easy, especially when the budget is sufficient and the landscape architect or designer is adept at what he does. What’s challenging about this task is whether the people (owners of the property, architects, engineers, general contractors and suppliers) involved in such project would commit to their responsibility to the environment. After all, most of the environmental issues the world is facing today are caused by people’s negligence to act as stewards of nature.

Qualities Of Sustainable Landscaping Products

Jonite aspires to make a difference in the building industry, however. It shows its commitment to sustainable design through its deliberate effort to provide ecological, economical, functional and creative landscaping features. Sustainable design is an approach that aims to maximize the quality of the built environment and at the same time eliminate or, if not, at least minimize the negative impact of man-made activities on the natural environment.

Jonite meets the standards of sustainable design through its innovative material (reconstituted stones) for creating outdoor construction products, such as floor traps and grates. Reconstituted stones are composed of recycled materials, yet they are durable. The application of a breakthrough technology helps reinforce the strength of reconstituted stones to ensure product resilience.

Advantages Of Customizable Landscaping Products

Consequently, Jonite has gained another benefit from reinforcing its reconstituted stones: more creative carvings are made on the surface of the reconstituted stone due to its acquired durability. This material could also be transformed into products that resemble the colors of natural stones, yet they are affordable. Providing customizable landscaping products also prevent critics from labeling once again (as they had during the seventies) the green architecture as an eyesore or a fad at its worst.

It’s important to take note though that sustainable design is not a fad. Rather, it’s a philosophy that can be applied to any building type at any scale.
