A SINGLE ACT SETS SO MUCH POSITIVITY IN MOTION
When you Plant Something – the simple act of putting trees, flowers or shrubs in the ground – you not only beautify your home and community, but you also purify air and water, provide pollinator habitat, increase property values, and improve human health and well-being. That’s PRETTY and POWERFUL stuff!
A well designed landscape not only adds beauty to your home, it can help cut your water use, improve your home’s comfort and lower your energy bills all year long.
The DOE Energy Saver 101 landscaping infographic covers everything you need to know about how your landscape can help you save energy and money.
"You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt."
Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day, and yet pollinators are at a critical point in their own survival. Increasing the number of pollinator-friendly gardens & landscapes will help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators. Take the Million Pollinator Challenge and Plant Something to help improve their health and numbers!
