Home & Garden

Incorporating ecological choices into your home, garden and grounds.

When working around your home and garden it is easy to make simple, ecological choices that will enhance the beauty and natural quality of your property. With the use of ecological gardening and landscaping techniques you can:  create a wildlife-friendly garden; contribute to improved air, water and soil quality; help mitigate climate change; help sustain water quantity; and reduce long-term maintenance.

Selecting native plants to match their preferred conditions and avoiding the use of pesticides will protect and restore local biodiversity and improve the over-all health of the Credit Valley watershed.
