Soils and Compost:

Physical weed control, including mulching, or hand removal protects the watershed from harmful chemicals.

Water-wise plants can be beautiful as well as practical.

Ask at your local nursery for the types of plants that have minimal watering needs.

Integrated Pest Management:

Develop healthy soil for plants that are vigorous and naturally pest-resistant.
