Learn sustainable landscaping practices through the Grow Green program. It addresses water quality and conservation, recycling, encourages using the right plant in the right place and the least impact-related way to address pest issues. There are several FAQ sheets and a searchable plant database just to mention a few of the gardening resources. It is a partnership between the Austin Watershed Protection Department and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.
