Living at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, located between the sea and the mountains, you are immersed in a unique natural setting on the Costa Blanca. For this reason, we’d like to suggest some measures to take care of the environment and to preserve this earthly paradise that allows us to live out our dreams.
At VAPF, we know that the nature that surrounds us is important because, thanks to it, our residential complex has a special charm, which is also why it deserves to be looked after by all of us. That’s why we like to carry out actions to raise awareness among residents, such as our Day of the Tree, which we organised for the second consecutive year and during which we planted 100 trees with Lady Elizabeth School students and some neighbours. With this project, we want to have as many green areas as possible at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, but it’s also a way to make the youngest generations aware of the ecological challenges of our era and to instil values in them that include looking after and respecting the environment in which we live.
The climate at Cumbre del Sol is something we benefit from greatly because it is quite easy to grow trees in this region with a hot climate in the summer and a mild climate during the winter. Therefore, under the same principle just as our Day of the Tree, we invite you to plant different types of vegetation in your garden and take the opportunity to reconnect with nature.
To bring more vegetation and greenery to Cumbre del Sol, you can reorganise the outdoor spaces of your home to enjoy a good Mediterranean garden. To do this, you have to choose plants that don’t need a lot of water and are very resistant. It is also important to create shaded areas, which will allow them to be protected from the sun and where you can take a nap without getting too hot. In addition to the classic palm trees, you can plant pines, cypresses, eucalyptus, olive trees, arborvitaes, laurels, red shrubs…And to give it a slightly wilder touch, you can introduce some agaves, aloe vera plants and also cacti and succulent plants.
Once you have chosen the plants you like the most, you can add a little colour to your garden with lilies, daisies, lantanas, red valerian, gauras, hibiscus, gazanias, geraniums, African daisies or vincas. Another option is to dedicate a portion of your garden to cultivating aromatic plants. Some possible options are mint, thyme, oregano, basil or rosemary plants to season your dishes and enjoy an explosion of flavors. And for those who really have a green thumb, they can have their own vegetable patch.
We all must work together to take care of the environment and preserve this natural paradise, in order to live in harmony with nature. Moreover, if the little ones grow up with the values we pass down, there is no doubt that they will always take care of the environment that surrounds them as well. The Day of the Tree is already a tradition among all Lady Elizabeth School students and Cumbre del Sol residents, but we would also love to see all the villas with green oasis gardens that would offer lovely spring photographs. Let’s join together and help take care of our surroundings!
