Irrigation- Watering plants too much and too frequently results in shallow roots, weed growth, diseases, fungus, and storm water runoff. Don't over water. Learn plants water needs and water appropriately.

Mulch, bag or compost your grass clippings after you mow. Don't let them run into storm drains. They can end up in lakes and rivers where they release nutrients, making weeds and algae grow.
