Natural yard care
What is natural yard care?
Natural Yard Care (NYC) is a way of maintaining the beauty of your home’s landscape without relying on chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Natural Yard Care techniques will grow healthy, beautiful, and easy to care for yards and gardens that are safer for your family, pets, and the environment.
Why natural yard care?
1) Build Healthy Soil
With compost and mulch your soil, and garden, will be healthier. It will also reduce your water bill, improve water quality in local streams, and transform your yard into a lower maintenance garden.
2) Plant Right for Your Site
Reduce maintenance in your garden by selecting pest- and disease-resistant plant varieties that will thrive in your site's unique conditions (sun, shade, moisture, use).
3) Practice Smart Watering
Watering too much or too little is the cause of many common plant problems in our area. You can have healthier plants, save money on water bills, and reduce runoff by learning to give your lawn and garden just what they need, and no more.
