Have A Minimal Impact On The Land

George's advice for gardeners is simple: Have a minimal impact on the land. First, use natives. Appreciate native plants, learn to appreciate their beauty. The Ocotillo is an example. It's in flower now. The flower is bright red and stunning. It may not have as much impact as a bunch of flowers, but it's more sensible and much more sustainable. Secondly, minimize chemical consumption. Natives will help with that. And another strategy is to minimize the amount of turf you use. One sees quite a bid of turf minimization in Tucson. Other ground covers can be attractive and a lot less dependent on chemicals and water. Try these ideas, implementing them isn't as difficult as one might imagine. And the rewards are many.
