1. Choose Plants Carefully: Native, waterwise, and pollinator-attracting plants will adapt more readily to your garden and require less supplemental water and fertilizer.
  2. Go Organic: Use organic products when possible. This improves soil health and adds beneficial microbes and nutrients to boost the garden's ecosystem.
  3. Thoughtful Watering: Water efficiently and use mulch to minimize water use and reduce waste.
  4. All-Natural Pest Control: Use beneficial bugs like ladybugs and praying mantises and companion plants to help deter pests.
