The Alabama Smart Yards (ASY) program is a cooperative alliance whose mission is to introduce environmental consciousness to homeowners and neighborhoods. This extensive handbook is packed with vital information that will help you create and implement a successful landscape plan. The 10 chapters include everything you need to get started and also feature instructions on how to recycle lawn waste and reduce stormwater runoff. Charts of plant and flower care, as well as lists of local resources, round out this highly informative guide.
