Lake Friendly Gardening Kit

A sustainable landscape cooperates with nature, renews itself, requires less maintenance, uses less energy, and conserves and protects our water resources.

Water resource faculty and staff work with our community horticulture program to offer classes, workshops and a variety of web-based information to help homeowners create their own sustainable landscape that meets their individual needs. Many of our programs are done in partnership with other local organizations to help reduce impacts associated with residential stormwater runoff.
