Every person’s yard can become their favorite room in the house and play a meaningful role in their daily life. A yard can make a significant environmental contribution to stormwater management, water quality and supply, flood protection, water treatment costs, clean air, pollination, food and shelter for migrating and resident birds and wildlife. It can also create a healthy place to relax, play, entertain and have fun.
People can be inspired by the beauty and healing powers of nature while experiencing amazing beauty, birds, butterflies, sounds and fragrances. Whether you hire help or do it yourself, the process of creating valuable habitat can save money on medical expenses, energy, water and lawn care while increasing the value of one of your greatest assets—your home. Meanwhile, you are helping to reduce your community's cost of living and taxes. Best of all, you, your family, nature and community all get better with age.
