Enjoy a beautiful, productive yard that's easy to maintain and suited to Calgary's unique climate. A YardSmart yard can transform your lawn, plants and garden into an inviting landscape that will be an inspiration to your neighbours.
In the face of the pressures brought on by a changing climate and a growing city, a water efficient YardSmart yard helps keep our rivers – and our community – healthy and resilient.
Safe yard work and gardening
When gardening outside, here are a few basic rules for physical distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Visit garden centres by yourself, and keep your trips to an absolute minimum.
- Shop at less busy times or better yet, call or order online for delivery or curbside pick-up.
- Stay connected through technology. Many local gardening experts and businesses have online training events, garden tours, and more.
- Learn more tips on how to garden safely this summer.
Less watering, less weeding and less fertilizing means you have more time to enjoy your yard and more savings on your water bill.
