Green gardening good for environment and wallet

Going green gardening

Going green in your yard isn’t just good for the environment; it can be good for your household budget, too.

Try some tips from the experts at the EPA and the National Gardening Association.

First, start a compost pile.

Food scraps can breakdown into an organic nutrient-rich matter that will turn ordinary soil into a gardener’s dream.

This method also cuts down on costs and fertilizer chemicals you introduce into the environment.

When it comes to watering, you don’t want to drench your lawn and garden.

It’s not good for the plants and it’s not good for your water bill.

Also, water early in the morning to prevent too much evaporation.

You can also collect rain water run-off and use it for plants and grass.
