Gardening in a Drought?
To help residents maximize the use of water in landscaped areas – as well as reduce runoff - the Our Water – Our World
program is offering Ten Tips for Water-Wise Gardening
. By following these practical measures, you can have a colorful garden and healthy soil with minimum water use.
And, to help you make informed decisions when selecting products to manage garden pests, MCSTOPPP partners with local businesses in using “shelf-talkers” (see below) to identify products that are less toxic to people and pets. Look for these “shelf-talkers” at the following stores:
- Bayside Garden Center
- Fairfax Ace Lumber & Hardware
- Goodman Building Supply
- Jackson’s Hardware
- Marin Ace Hardware
- Orchard Supply Hardware
- Pini Ace Hardware
- Sloat Garden Center (all stores)
- Sunnyside Nursery of Marin
- The Home Depot
- Toby’s Feed Barn
