  2. Use commonsense pest management (IPM)
  3. Reduce reliance on pesticides, fertilizers, and water
  4. Reduce runoff
  5. Promote vegetative buffers
  6. Choose right plant, right place, right use
  7. Promote native and non-invasive alien plants
  8. Promote YardScape diversity
  9. Create wildlife habitats
  10. Reduce lawn area
