The Landscaping Smarter website is part of Maryland’s Smart, Green & Growing online initiative, in which the state is “leading by example” on key environmental issues that also include energy conservation, green buildings and green business practices. The website also encourages Marylanders to practice Bay-friendly lawn care. We want to express our deep gratitude to supporters who helped us make this important model project a reality. We still plan on producing signage for the grounds that will provide the link to this website and a media event this spring. We are now promoting this initiative and your contribution via our website , Facebook page and Smart on Pesticides Twitter feed. Please link to the website from yours and let your customers know you are a part of this groundbreaking project.
