Default Landscape for Life - Getting Started

Landscape for Life

Getting Started



Quote:
Conventional gardens unintentionally often work against nature. They can damage the environment’s ability to clean air and water, reduce flooding, combat climate change, and provide all the other natural benefits that support life on earth—including us,

The good news is that even one home garden can begin to repair the tattered 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.

The Landscape For Life workbooks help you transform your home garden into a beautiful and healthy refuge for you and your family. You can download the complete workbook, or individual workbooks on Getting Started, Soil, Water, Plants, Materials, and Human Health. Each workbook includes helpful advice on gardening practices that take advantage of natural processes at work on your property.
