Green Lawn sign
The Yorkson Watershed Stewardship Committee developed the Green Lawn and Garden sign project to bring individuals new pride in their lawns and gardens because they choose to garden without compromising the health of their community or the environment.
If you are proud that your garden is maintained without harmful pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers and would like to display a FREE “Green Lawn and Garden” sign in your garden please contact Sarah at [email protected].
Natural Yard Care
Natural yard care (or “ecoscaping”) is about working with nature to create a yard that is attractive and easy to maintain with a minimum of resources. Consider transforming a high-maintenance lawn into an inviting, drought-tolerant landscape that will become an inspiration for the neighbourhood and an important part of its biodiversity.
