Protect Our Waters: Practice Natural Yard Care

Natural Yard CareDid you know that all storm drains in Bellevue lead to a lake, stream, or wetland? When you practice natural yard care, you’re helping to protect fish and other wildlife.
Here are two tips:
  1. Build healthy soil with compost and mulch: your garden and lawn will require less watering, which can mean more money in your pocket. You’ll also use less fertilizer, which can be harmful when runoff carries it into to local waterways.
  2. Avoid using pesticides: they’re dangerous and the solution can be as simple as choosing more pest-resistant plants.
Create a yard that is safer for your family, pets and the natural environment. For inspiration, visit our Waterwise Garden at the Bellevue Botanical Garden.
