re:Yard Sustainable Yard Certification Project:

This sustainable yard certification program that recognizes best-in-class yard care practices. To receive re:Yard certification, your yard must earn points by satisfying requirements from credits within the re:Yard guidelines. As your yard accumulates enough points, you achieve different levels of certification. The program includes 31 credits covering topics such as water efficiency, sustainable materials, composting and native plants. The participant chooses the credits that best fit their individual yards.  Join the program and get a sign for your yard.
