Be Earth-Conscious in the Garden and Yard

Create a landscape that beneifts you and Mother Nature

Green living isn't just for indoors. You can create a yard and garden that look great without harming your yard's other occupants -- birds and insects. Plus, you'll be able to brag to buyers about your eco-friendly lawn. Here are some things to try:

1. Build your deck with earth-friendly materials.

A lot of deck materials come from tropical hardwoods. If you choose to go with a hardwood deck, make sure you choose wood that has been harvested sustainably. This helps the environment and preserves endangered rain forests. Western red cedar is a great option; it needs less energy and produces less waste to manufacture than materials like steel and concrete. It's also biodegradable and can be recycled.
