ROI Calculation

If you are considering a landscape renovation at home, here is a formula for estimating the operational savings associated with installing a lush, leafy, low-water native landscape vs. a traditional landscape, gravelscape, or synthetic lawn.

Operational savings in gardens like these can include:

  • 100 percent of the annual flower budge
  • 100 percent of the toxic chemical fertilizer budget
  • 100 percent of the toxic chemical pesticide budget
  • 100 percent of soil amendment budget
  • 81 percent of the time spent on maintenance
  • 75 percent of the funds used for mower petrol
  • 60-80 percent of the water previously needed
  • 63 percent of fees associated with garden waste
  • 15-50 percent of the energy dedicated to climate control
