Five easy steps to friendly landscape by Melinda Myers Gardening Expert It's possible to create a beautiful landscape and be kind to the environment even with a busy schedule and while staying within budget. "All it takes is a bit of planning and a few low maintenance strategies," says gardening expert and author Melinda Myers. Myers recommends these fixe strategies to create a low maintenance eco-friendly land- scape this season. Be Waterwise - Save money on the water bill, time spent wa- tering and this precious resource, water. Start by growing drought tolerant plants suited tO your growing environment. Once est- ablished they will only need watering during extended dry spells. Mulch with shredded lea- ves, evergreen needles, wood- chips or other organic matter to conserve moisture, reduce we- eds, and improve the soil as they decompose. Fertilize with a low nitrogen fertilizer, like Milorganite, that promotes slow steady growth instead of excessive greenery thlt requires more water. Plus, it won't burn even during drought. Put rainwater to work all season long by using rain barrels to capture rainwater off your roof or directly from the sky. Recycle Yard Waste in the Landscape - Minimize the amount of yard waste produced, a low maintenance eco- reuse what can be in other areas of the landscape and recycle the rest as compost. These are just a few strategies that will save time bagging, hauling, and disposing of yard debris. And better yet, implemeiating this strategy will save money and time spent buying and transporting soil amendments, since it will be created right in the backyard. Start by leaving grass clip- pings on the lawn. The short clippings break down quickly, adding organic matter, nutrients and moisture to the soil. Grow trees suited to the growing con- ditions and available space. That means less pruning and fewer trimmings that will need to be managed. Make Compost at home - Recycle yard waste into com- post. Put plant waste into a heap and let it rot. Yes, it really is that simple. The more effort put into the process, the quicker the results. Do not add insect-infested or diseased plant material or peren- nial weeds like quack grass, an- nual weeds gone to seed or inva- sive plants. Most compost piles are not hot enough to kill these pests. And do not 'add meat, dai, ry, or bones that can attract rodents. Manage Pests in Harmony with Nature - A healthy plant is the best defense against insects and disease Select the most pest-resistant plants suited to the DMV encourages motorists footwear while driving -Warmer Temperatures Can Lead to Dangerous As the weather gets warmer, the Virginia Department of Mot- or Vehicles (DMV) is reminding drivers that proper shoes play a big part in safety. Drivers should wear safe footwear that does not have an open heel such as flip-flops or sandals because these types of shoes can slip off and wedge un- der accelerator or brake pedals. High-heeled shoes can also be problematic because heels can get caught in or under floor mats and delay accelerating or brak- ing when needed. Driving in bare feet, socks, or stockings can also be dangerous causing your feet to slip off the gas or brake pedals. While wearing certain types of footwear while driving or driving barefoot is not illegal, vehicle control can be compro- mised, and it is not recom- mended. Sneakers or low heel flat shoes are encouraged. Consider keeping an extra pair of good driving shoes in your car to wear while operating your vehicle. DMV cautions drivers to be extra careful in wet weather as slippery soles make it easier for your foot to slip offthe pedals. "Our employees see it all the time," says DMV Commissioner growing conditions and provide proper care. Check plants regularly throughout the growing season It is easier to control a few insects than the hundreds that can develop in a week or two. And when problems arise, look for the most eco-friendly control. Start by removing small infest- ations by hand. Consider traps, barriers and natural products if further control is needed. And as always be sure to read and follaw label directions carefully. Energy Wise Landscape Design - Use landscape plant- ings to keep homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Homes will have a more comfortable temperature throughout the seasons and energy costs will be reduced. Plant trees on the east and west slate of a house to shade windows in the summer and let the sun shine in and warm it up through the south-facing win- dows in winter. Shade air conditioners, so they run more efficiently and be sure to collect and use any water they produce for container gardens. - Incorporate these changes into gardening ventures.--a habits overtime. Then soon these and many more strategies that help you save time and money while being kind to the environment will seem to occur automatically. to wear safe Driving Habits- Richard D. Holcomb.
