Harness nature’s power to create a healthy, beautiful home landscape. Sustainable Landscapes, modeling the national Landscape for Life program, http://landscapeforlife.org/, teaches you how to work with nature in your landscape, no matter where you live, whether you garden in a city or suburban lot, 20–acre farm, or the common area of your condominium. Conventional gardens often work against nature and can damage the environment's ability to clean air and water, reduce flooding, and combat climate change. The good news is that even one home garden can begin to repair the web of life. It's possible to create a great–looking garden that's healthier for you, your family, your pets, and the environment and that saves you time and money. Topics include successful soil, water, plant and materials practices with emphasis on native plants.
