Install solar-powered lights instead of energy-consuming ones. Use biological pest control to protect your plants instead of harmful pesticides. Relax on recycled plastic furniture instead of furniture made from virgin wood. Whether you choose to engage in just one or all of the ideas on this page, you will transform your yard into a place that is natural, beautiful, and sustainable!
Here are three greening solutions in the yard and garden that can help you take green to the next level:
- Capture Your Rainwater - Conserve hundreds of gallons of water annually by harvesting rainwater. The water from your roof is a precious commodity. It's easy to catch it and reuse for watering, showering, cleaning, or even if filtered, drinking. Green Home's rain barrels are inexpensive, easy to install and maintain, and are perfect for houses or apartment buildings. For example, the Recyclable Rain Barrel holds 50 gallons and can be linked to multiple units.
- Start Composting - Composting is so much easier to do than people realize. And you don't need fancy equipment. Waste otherwise destined for a landfill gets turned into nutrient-rich organic fertilizer for your garden. Green Home offers a variety of solutions based on the space families have available, including indoor composters for apartments or outdoor yard units.

- Plant a Vegetable Garden - Growing your own food is a movement sweeping the country. It's as local as it gets, plus the best (and cheapest) organic food comes right out of your back yard! Growing your own vegetables saves money, is educational, and is a healthy outdoor activity for the whole family. Green Home provides the eco-friendly tools needed to make it easy, such as the Garden Grow Filter and Organic Seeds.
