4 Sustainable Gardening Tips
Are you planning to beautify your garden this summer? Have you already started? Here are some sustainable gardening tips you could try this year!
1. Practice Organic Gardening
Try to use fewer chemicals in your garden! Especially if you are raising food for your family and neighbours.
2. Install a Rain Barrel
A single rain barrel can capture over 3,000 litres of rainwater every year! Your plants will love the chlorine-free water!
3. Mulch your Landscape
Add a 2 to 3-inch layer of the mulch of your choice (look for local sources like shredded bark or grass clippings). Mulch retains water and maintains temperatures.
4. Start Composting Food & Yard Waste
It can turn into a nutrient-rich, sustainable fertilizer. Contact Green Calgary to learn how to start composting!
