Bay-Friendly is a holistic approach to gardening and landscaping that works in harmony with the natural conditions of the San Francisco Bay Watershed. Bay-Friendly practices foster soil health, conserve water and other valuable resources while reducing waste and preventing pollution. Bay-friendly landscaping & gardening promotes healthy vegetation that is suited for our local climate, and minimizes demand on synthetic fertilizers and water resources.
