Sustainable Landscaping and Chemical-free Yards: The Earth-Friendly Grass is Always Greener

Tips for environmentally friendly lawns and landscaping



Reduce the amount of water your yard uses by planting drought-tolerant native plants, using a soaker hose instead of a sprinkler, or watering deeply but less frequently.
To help control insects without using chemicals, raise chickens, which also provide fresh eggs.
Native plant species reseed themselves easily and grow with little or no maintenance.
Bird houses are decorative and invite natural pest consumers into the yard.
Rake organic compost into your lawn to help nourish the soil.
