Bay-Friendly is a systematic approach to creating and managing beautiful, healthy landscapes that conserve water, reduce waste and pollution, and provide many other benefits for property owners, communities and the environment.
Based on seven principles, the Bay-Friendly approach is flexible and can be adapted to suit a variety of styles and needs, from residential yards with areas for playing, relaxing, and growing food, to busy city parks that invite in people and wildlife, to corporate and institutional campuses that are as easy to maintain as they are easy on the environment.
Bay-Friendly practices address issues that property owners care about, such as lowering water bills, reducing risks associated with many landscape chemicals, complying with stormwater regulations, and creating habitat for bees, birds and other pollinators and beneficial wildlife.
Become a Bay-Friendly Qualified Professional and learn how to create beautiful, healthy landscapes that do a world of good.
