Goal: Manage resources and materials efficiently by reducing material needs, reusing materials generated onsite, and recycling materials as much as possible.
|Keep and reuse landscape by-products. For example, collect and shred leaves to use as mulch, and compost vegetative debris to mix into the soil and improve its structure.|

|> Yard Waste and Composting|
|Select and use renewable, local, and/or low-energy input landscape materials. Avoid materials, products, and practices that are harmful to the environment.|
