"Yard by Yard" Project Steers Homeowners Toward Natural Landscapes
Did you know adding a few ‘earth-friendly’ practices to your home lawn care can make a big impact on pollinators?
Tulsa’s “Yard by Yard” Community Resilience Project is an initiative of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission. The program highlights homeowners who utilize green lawn care systems that help with pollinator, soil, and water conservation.
‘Earth friendly’ practices include maintaining a pesticide and herbicide-free yard, increasing your mowing height, using rain barrels to collect water, composting, planting native plants, using host plants for native wildlife, and much more.
Tulsa County residents can submit a video or pictures of their yard and a simple checklist of activities to see if they qualify for the “Yard by Yard” project.
