gardeners can use to prevent runoff, benefits of rain gardens and installation and maintenance instructions.
Greening Your Neighborhood
Creating an eco-friendly yard can seem daunting but even if you live on a small lot that is exposed to sidewalks and street traffic you can use these techniques to "green" your landscape and your neighborhood. This program focuses on simple, sustainable practices and techniques in the areas of preserving and conserving water, reducing air, water and land pollution, creating habitat for birds, butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects and addressing some of the issues that will reduce an individual's contribution to climate change.
Gardens, Pavers, Barrels & Trees
If you build a garden, plant a tree or add a rain barrel under your downspout you will be helping to reduce stormwater runoff and might never even know it. Eliminating stormwater sounds like a boring and dirt subject but if you think about it in the form of Gardens, Pavers, Barrels and Trees it’s much more accessible and something that all homeowners should know.”
