Physical weed control, including mulching, or hand removal protects the watershed from harmful chemicals.
Replace turf with groundcovers, trees, and shrubs.
If you have areas where no one uses the grass, patches that do not grow well, or a turf area too small to water without runoff, consider replacing the turf with water-efficient landscaping.
Drip and other smart irrigation delivers water directly to roots, allowing no excess water for weeds.
