Landscaping activities can be major contributors to stormwater pollution. Soil, fertilizers, pesticides, and yard clippings get washed into the stormwater system and make their way to our rivers. Even mowing and removing trees and vegetation can be harmful if done in riverbank areas.
One of the best ways to prevent pollution from your lawn is to consider natural landscaping, sometimes called ecoscapes, naturescaping or greenscapes (and save time and money!).
