Sustainable Gardening Tips

Soils and Compost

Incorporate compost 6" into your soil to retain water, reduce compaction, feed earthworms, and provide valuable nutrients to your plants.

Integrated Pest Management

Drip and other smart irrigation delivers water directly to roots, allowing no excess water for weeds.

Water Saving Tips

Remember to check your irrigation system at least once a month, especially your valves, sprinkler heads, and drip emitters.
