Sustainable Gardening Tips

Soils and Compost

Practice grass-cycling by leaving short grass clippings on lawns after mowing, so that nutrients and organic matter are returned to the soil.

Integrated Pest Management

Attract, or buy beneficial insects such as ladybugs and lacewings to control pest outbreaks in your garden.

Water Saving Tips

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