Sustainable Gardening Tips

Soils and Compost

Physical weed control, including mulching, or hand removal protects the watershed from harmful chemicals.

Integrated Pest Management

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

Water Saving Tips

Water-wise plants can be beautiful as well as practical.

Ask at your local nursery for the types of plants that have minimal watering needs.
