Greenscaping - A Change In Thinking

September 2013

I love my property.  My front, back and side yards are all part of my outdoor living space.  It's very relaxing to walk around or sit in these spaces. 

To smell flowers blooming, to pluck fresh fruit straight from the tree, to walk to my vegetable garden and pick a meal, are all small pleasures of life that I enjoy. Greenscaping is the idea that there is a better purpose for our yards. 

This brochure contains the basic elements of Greenscaping.  http://www.epa.gov/oppfead1/Publications/catalog/greenscaping.pdf

Before planting a lawn of grass consider the benefits of choosing plants that give back in fragrant flowers, delicious fruit or nutritious vegetables.
