You'll need to think about the materials you use in your sustainable garden. Recycled products are good, in theory, but the carbon emissions required to recycle them often outweighs their seeming benefit. Purchasing new products made from sustainably-harvested wood may actually be a better option, especially if the product was made by a local craftsperson who can customize it to be a one-of-a-kind perfect fit for your design.
