Smart Gardening is Niagara Region's way of promoting environmentally friendly lawn and garden practices.
Niagara's Smart Gardening represents a number of "green" programs developed and managed by the Region's Public Works and Public Health departments. Smart Gardening will include an ever-growing range of environmental initiatives.
You can be a smart gardener today by composting, leaving grass clippings on lawns (grasscycling), conserving water, reducing the use of pesticides, choosing alternatives to salt for snow and ice melting, using mulch, participating in the organics collection program and protecting yourself against the West Nile Virus.
Grass clippings are not collected at the curb. Instead, residents are encouraged to grasscycle. More Grasscycling Information
