        Sorry if this post sounds like spam.

        I'm just trying to see if there would be any interest in a website that shows how to do natural & sustainable landscaping for DIYers? Thoughts / comments?

        There already are such sites. If you wanted to create your own site, you'd need some credentials and experience to support your premises.

        Organic gardeners have been engaging in these kinds of practices for decades.

        What specifically are your interest and intent? Are you considering creating your own website? What kind of property do you have now and how do you intend to apply the natural and sustainable techniques? Are you a gardener?

        Yes, I'm considering creating a website. I've worked on a couple properties to replace ornamentals with native species. There are a lot of books that are helpful, but I haven't found a website that shows beginners how to plan and where to start. Thanks.

        So you're a professional landscaper?

        Adding sustainable landscape design to your home is a great way to add curb appeal and increase your own use and enjoyment of your yard space. Talking with a landscape designer might be a good first step, as landscape design is as much about which species complement each other in terms of water use.
