Sustainable Gardening Tips:

Soils and Compost:

Maintain a two to four inch layer of mulch on the soil surface to reduce weeds, infiltrate rain water, and reduce compaction.

Integrated Pest Management:

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

Water Saving Tips:

Mulching and adding compost to soil can minimize evaporation and help soil absorb and store water.
