Plant a Pollinator Garden

Plant a wide variety of native plants that bloom from early spring into late fall. Refer to recommended plant list - Native Pollinator Plants

Rethink your Lawn

  • leave the clippings on the grass as fertilizer rather than adding chemical

  • consider the use of slow-release organic fertilizers if you fertilize

  • plant native plants (they attract beneficial insects that get rid of pests)

  • no need for pesticides! this means a healthy lawn for your children and pets too!

  • leave some leaves in beds for overwintering insects, mow the rest and leave them to help fertilize lawn
