Sustainable Gardening Tips:

Water Saving Tip:

Apply a 2" layer of mulch around plants to reduce moisture loss.

Choose organic mulches, such as shredded bark, compost, or aged sawdust.

Inorganic mulches such as gravel are also acceptable.


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.
