Nature is Always Right - Restoration Agriculture for Urban Gardens 

You don't have to be a land baron to be a land steward.  Over time, urban construction practices and traditional yard maintenance degrade the natural health of the soil and the total ecosystem within your yard.  This leads to problems that cannot be fixed by the next big thing in a bottle or a bag.  The answer lies in nature and what we can learn through observation and mimicry.  It's not at all difficult, and it takes far less time than you think.  A few simple actions can result in big differences within a few short months.  And in a year's time, you can have a healthier landscape that is actually easier and cheaper to maintain.  Restoration agriculture isn't just for farmers!  Whether you are growing food, a lawn, or an ornamental landscape, restoration agriculture practices can make a difference.
