Have your own carbon pool
What distinguishes a lush overgrown garden from a rock garden full of gravel?
The overgrown garden is a super carbon store, while the other ensures that the stony surface heats up very much in summer and has a negative effect on the climate around the house.Easy care is not always sensible. And certainly not for the climate.
So the basic rule is: the fuller the planting in your garden, the better. Wild growth is desired and even plant remains may remain in the garden. Because even branches and logs bind CO2 as long as they rot.
