Streamside Gardening

As a homeowner with property along a stream, you know the beauty and value the stream adds to your home.  Your streamside is part of a larger system of plants and animals that live near and within the stream itself.

Balancing your needs as a homeowner and gardener with the needs of the larger ecosystem and community for clean water is what this site is all about.
