Green Resolutions for the New Year

Here are some earth friendly landscape resolutions to choose from to start making a difference!

  1. Reduce lawn areas which will conserve water, reduce the need for chemical fertilization and reduce landfill waste of lawn clippings.
  2. Use landscape fabrics in planting areas to reduce weeds and the need for chemical herbicides.
  3. Plant trees to shade your buildings and pavement which reduce energy and the heat island effect.
  4. Correctly prune shrubs to reduce landfill waste, create more seed for wildlife and allow more flower blooms.
  5. Use a broom and not a hose to clean sidewalks & pool decks to conserve water.
  6. Use mulching lawn mowers to reduce landfill waste and provide turf areas with organic material.
  7. Start composting to improve your garden soil organically and reduce landfill waste.
  8. Plant a vegetable or herb garden. Start small with a container garden.
  9. Use an electric or push reel lawn mower to reduce air pollution.
