SWRC Tip - Watering the Lawn
Frequent watering can result in a shallow root system, weed growth and disease, and a less drought- and stress-tolerant lawn. If your lawn is established, water it deeply, but not more than once a week and skip a week after a good rain.
SWRC Tip - Shopping
Don’t browse in stores. Figure out what you need and make a list before you go – that way you don’t end up buying other things you don’t really need.
SWRC Tip - Construction
Use wood from environmentally certified forests (such as FSC), and fast-renewable materials such as bamboo and straw. Use reclaimed materials like stone. And always think non-toxic, local, reusable, and recyclable.
