Through Yardscaping, Gary Fish hopes to inspire Maine people to create and maintain healthy landscapes through ecologically based practices that minimize reliance on water, fertilizer and pesticides. Some things he will discuss are: low maintenance and native plants, low input yard care, proper plant choice, and managing pests wisely. Think first… Spray last!
