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:

Remove irrigation water and fertilizer from areas where you don't want weeds to grow.

Water Saving Tips:

Water between sunset and sunrise when temperatures and wind are the lowest.
