•1. Make a compost pile using kitchen and garden waste. Mixing them together in a bin in your yard will accelerate the process. The compost material, used in your gardens, will increase water retention and provides nutrients for plants.
•2. Plan to put an automatic timer on your water hose. Installation is quick and easy and requires no wiring or digging and is an excellent way to reduce water consumption.
•3. Consider the use of solar powered lightinginstead of electric lighting to reduce energy cost and still maintain safety and aesthetics.
•4. In a few weeks when it is time to fertilize do so carefully. Do not wash fertilizer spills into the street or down sewer drains. Consider using compost or organic materials instead of commercial products for fertilizing.
•5. Research the use of Biological pest control for a natural chemical free way to rid you gardens of unwanted pests.
