Lawn & Garden Tips

help ensure our stormwater quality by following these tips

Stormwater runoff can pick up pollutants from yards, streets, and buildings as it travels towards our storm sewers and eventually to Big Fossil and Little Fossil Creek. There are sev­eral things that Haltom City residents can do during lawn and garden activities that benefit stormwater quality, your household and com­munity as a whole.

-Create Raingardens Or Collect Rainwater For Your Flower Or Vegetable Gardens


  • Helps conserve water and reduces storm­water runoff
  • Filters stormwater for better water qual­ity
  • Adds a beautiful landscape addition
  • Find out more information about using rainwater for garden­ing here

-Buy Plants & Seeds That Come In Biodegradable Packaging
-Recycle Any Plastic Containers From Pur­chased Bags Of Soil, Fertilizers, Compost Or Plants


  • Reduces litter that can enter storm drains from yards
  • Prevents clogging of storm drains
  • Encourages sustainable purchasing habits
  • Saves money on compost and fertilizer as biodegradable con­tainers compost naturally in your garden soil.

-Use Clippings Or Other Yard Waste In Compost, As Natural Mulch, Natural Yard Fertilization, Or Dispose Of Properly In Biodegradable Waste Bags

  • Prevents natural yard debris and clip­pings from clogging storm drains
  • Saves money on store-bought compost and fertilizers
  • Improves health of lawn and garden by encouraging natural nutrient cycling

-Follow Pesticide, Herbicide & Fertil­izer Application Instructions

  • More is not always better...save time and money by applying chemicals only when necessary and in the proper doses ac­cording to labels
  • Creates healthier plants and lawns
  • Protects creeks and streams from nutrient pollution and saves aquatic life
