In an urban setting with limited green space, mulch can be an excellent alternative to more

high-maintenance ground coverings.

It also adds visual contrast to your flowerbeds and can be used to highlight other landscaping

features in your outdoor space.

Organic mulch doesn’t just make your garden look great – it helps the ground retain water,

prevents weeds, and reduces erosion.

It’s also an important step in winterizing your garden.

Laying down mulch in the fall will help your trees and shrubs survive through a cold winter

and save you time next spring!

You don’t have to install solar panels on your roof to power your entire home to make a green swap!

Take a small eco-friendly step and really make your landscape shine by replacing outdoor lights

with solar powered ones.

Install small lights in your garden or along a driveway.

Most solar powered LED for outdoor use are inexpensive and self-sustaining!

Vertical Gardening

One of the best ways to pack a green punch in a small outdoor space is by growing up

instead of out.

Make use of retaining walls or fences is trendy and beautiful, and it takes up less space

than a traditional garden.

Produce like tomatoes, peppers and beans grow very successfully in hanging baskets

and on trellises.

For areas with limited sun exposure, cabbage and lettuce are popular choices.

Composting Bins

Food waste, leaves, sticks, grass clippings, and other organic materials will create soil filled with

nutrients for your indoor or outdoor plants.

While decidedly less glamorous than a vertical planting installation or new lighting, a compost pile

doesn’t have to just look like a rotting pile of organic matter!

Build your own compost bins using cedar, or upcycle a galvanized container to keep your compost

from being the focal point of your outdoor area.
