- Plant right for your site: Select pest-resistant plants and put them in soil mixture and sun conditions they like. Consult a garden expert for advice on the right plant for your conditions.
- Clean up troublemakers: Remove diseased plants as soon as possible.
- Plant a tree: By maintaining and increasing the number of trees in your neighborhood you are helping intercept rainwater, which prevents flooding and problems from stormwater runoff. Well-placed trees and bushes on your property can also help insulate your home from heat and cold, and can provide great habitat for birds, butterflies, and other local wildlife.
IT ALL ADDS UP:
Healthy, well-placed plants need fewer chemicals, use less water, prevent flooding and can even help insulate your home.
