TurfMutt is an environmental superhero who teaches kids how to “save the planet, one yard at a time.”
Thanks to him, a lucky teacher will win a trip to the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) annual conference in spring 2017, an elementary school will win a $10,000 grant and thousands of children in grades K-5 will learn backyard science and how to take care of the environment.
Enter TurfMutt’s "Be a Backyard Superhero” contest by January 23.
Many regions of the U.S. have experienced drought over the years. But drought is not forever. Our ways of dealing with water scarcity shouldn’t have forever consequences, either. Reportedly, California spent more than $400 million in taxpayer money to encourage homeowners to replace their living landscapes with deadened rocks, mulch, pavers and plastic grass. But these short-sighted policies are having long-term environmental consequences from dead and dying trees and eviscerated wildlife habitat and play spaces for kids and pets. One size does not fit all when it comes to managed landscapes. Know your zone and plant appropriately. Learn more.
Even in a drought, you can have grass and other living plants. You just have to choose the right kind of lawn and care for it properly. Follow these 3 guidelines:
KNOW YOUR CLIMATE ZONE: What plants will survive in your climate and micro-climate?
SELECT DROUGHT-TOLERANT PLANTS: Many species of grass and plants require very little water.
WATER WISELY: Only water when necessary. A brown lawn will green up when rains come. Learn more.
