Climate protection in the garden - climate-friendly gardening

The Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union has put together tips for more climate protection in the garden. You can also use your gardening behavior to influence the changes in climate conditions that affect everyone.

  1. Use non-toxic soil: Toff-free soil helps to save carbon dioxide and secure habitats for endangered species.

  2. Use organic fertilizers correctly: Too much nitrogen in the garden is can be harmful and cause nitrous oxide. Synthetically produced fertilizers are also bad for the climate

  3. Reuse used materials: Bricks for bordering beds, an old zinc tub as a planter or a bird bath made from old soup bowls? Just as in nature, we humans should not waste anything.

  4. Grow your own vegetables: there are no transportation or heating costs if you grow vegetables in your own garden. It is also generally good to only buy seasonal vegetables

  5. Do not burn garden waste: Burning plant material releases carbon dioxide into the environment. It is much better to leave wood and brushwood to rot in the garden. This provides habitats for animals and insects.
