GREEN GARDEN:

  • Compost leaves and organics from the kitchen. The compost helps as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer, and works as a natural pesticide for the soil.
  • Landscape with plants that are natural to our region or do well in a semi-arid climate.
  • Utilize natural predators in your garden to control invasive insects. This will allow you to remove pesticide from your gardening routine.
  • Select annuals the will provide volunteers for next year.
  • Amend your soil using natural fertilizers.
  • Provide a food and water source for birds, they will help control invasive insects.
  • Landscape with plants that will attract nectar eaters as well as food for their larva.
