Ecogardens, or ecological gardens, are ways to save natural resources and still enjoy gardens and landscapes. Many methods of ecogardening are available.
For Western Oregon, ecogardening approaches include:
WaterWise Gardening, which uses plant choices to reduce water use, leaving more available for other uses such as agriculture, drinking water, and wildlife.
Native Plant Gardening, which reduces chemical and water use and stimulates use of your garden by wildlife.
Streamside Gardening techniques, using native plants to augment natural stream biology and function.
Controlling invasive species of garden origin (An ecogardening concern).
