Love a beautiful lawn? Panel explores 'green' landscaping

September 23, 2019by ncdea

WYOMING, Teton CD – Experts in landscaping and its impact on the environment will hold a panel Monday at the library, giving community members a chance to learn about — and weigh in on — how best to care for private and public land around Teton County.

As the region’s human population grows, so does its potential to harm the surrounding water and wildlife. For example, using large amounts of fertilizer and pesticides can alter rivers and streams. Carlin Girard, water resources specialist with the Teton Conservation District and one of the panelists, argues proper landscaping is a simple step that anyone can take to lessen environmental damage.

“I’ve never heard a meaningful conversation at a community level about the cumulative effect of landscaping practices,” he said. “That is something that’s occurring all over the country, and we’re not leading the charge. We’re trying to start that conversation.”
