Conservation - Outdoors
Plant a garden. Enjoy the freshest kind of organic vegetables—the kind you grow yourself.
Use compost on your lawn, plants, and garden instead of commercial fertilizers.
Collect water off of your roof in a rain barrel—then water your lawn guilt-free.
Install drip hoses or low flow sprinkler heads to water your garden and plants.
Plant trees – they thrive on CO2 and produce oxygen.
Switch to a gas-free lawnmower.
Instead of using wood, build your deck out of recycled plastic composite that lasts longer and is maintenance free. You won’t have to paint your new deck—now or ever!
Use a rake rather than a leaf blower to gather leaves.
