Smart Gardening is an easy way to get a really great looking yard while using less resources. You save yourself time while doing something to help keep the County a nice place to live. Yardwaste disposed in landfills diminishes their capacity. Composted trimmings are a valuable resource for nurturing your backyard.

When you practice smart gardening, you will conserve water, improve your lawn and garden, recycle yard waste and kitchen scraps, divert waste from landfills, and help preserve the environment. These simple practices do not take much time, and they help develop healthy and beautiful lawns and gardens.

To learn about backyard and worm composting, water-wise gardening, grasscycling and other techniques, attend our webinars. Below are videos for those who want to view at their convenience, but we encourage you to attend a live webinar to be able to ask questions and purchase compost bins.
