Because it works! Being YardWise simply means working with Mother Nature instead of against her to keep your yard healthy and beautiful.
Texans spend more than hundreds of millions of dollars each year just to dispose of yard trimmings, and billions in total yard care costs, including watering, fertilizing, chemicals to combat harmful insects and plant diseases, and professional services. Get YardWise, and save a bundle.
Save Time & Effort
Billions of microbes and millions of beneficial insects and worms will work for food, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, to make your yard healthy and beautiful, saving you lots of work saving you time to enjoy life.
Have a Beautiful, Healthy Lawn
Health is the foundation of real beauty, for people and their yards. YardWise practices bring out the natural beauty of your yard, and make it more resistant to drought, harmful insects, and plant diseases and save you time, effort and money in the bargain.
Improve Environmental Quality
Your little piece of the Earth is directly connected to everyone else's. By improving your home environment with YardWise, you also reduce erosion, improve water and air quality, and conserve limited resources for us all.
- Homeowners & landscapers apply about 90 percent of the pesticides used in the U.S., while farming accounts for only about 10 percent.
- Turf grass in lawns and other green spaces is more heavily irrigated than any agricultural crop, receiving as much as half of city water supplies during the long Texas warm season.
- The EPA estimates that nearly two-thirds of the pollution in U.S. rivers and more than three-fourths of the pollution in our lakes comes from "non-point sources," including residential lawns and landscapes.
- Runoff from lawns and other urban landscapes carries topsoil and chemicals into the streams and lakes that we increasingly rely on for our drinking water.
