Green Living

Going “green” by using organic lawn care products and less labor-intensive practices is just the first step in the process to convert your unsustainable lawn into a less-thirsty native plant landscape. Go “greener” by harvesting rainwater to nourish your soil, reduce your water bill and water in between downpours.
