GreenandMore.com announces the top ways to go green this spring, from lawn care without using gas and electricity, to outdoor solar lighting, water conservation with rain barrels and composting.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) February 22, 2008 – GreenandMore.com today announced top ways to go green this Spring. Spring arrives March 20, just a month away, so it's the perfect time to rethink lawn care, gardening, and outdoor living products that are popular backyard spring cleaning activities and purchases as the weather warms up.
"There are many practical, energy saving and earth-friendly products for lawn care, outdoor lighting, organic gardening, and water conservation to help everyone turn a new leaf and consider the planet in their Springtime purchasing decisions" says Mercia Tapping, President of GreenandMore.com.
1. Save gas or electricity with a push mower - they cut down on energy usage because there is no gas or electricity required, and maintain a healthy, attractive lawn. And, push mowers are noise-free, lighter weight around 40 lbs, and affordable compared to the energy consuming lawn mower choices on the market.

2. Save energy with solar LED garden outdoor lighting - these outdoor accent lights save energy and light sidewalks, driveways, and paths by night. They come in a variety of shapes and styles, and they provide safety and a decorative touch to a garden, front yard or back yard. Most of these solar lights offer a soft, pleasant light for up to 10 hours with a one day solar charge.

3. Conserve water with Rain Barrels - When it rains, it stores! Water conservation is easy when using natural resources, and rain barrels can be made from recycled materials such as Olive storage barrels. Simply line up a rain barrel with a downspout from the roof, and all of the rain that would normally drain into the yard gets saved, and used when it's needed to water plants or flowers.

4. Fertilize without chemicals: Compost - reduce household waste in a nearly odorless way, and put nutrients back into the earth with compost bins. Composters can help a garden by improving yields of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Some composters work in just 3 weeks, and are made of up to 100% recycled plastic, even reused pickle barrels.
