Russian River-Friendly Landscape Guidelines
Sustainable Practices for the Landscape Professional
The Russian River-Friendly Landscape Guidelines is a comprehensive toolbox of principles and practices to aid landscape professionals in the protection and conservation of the Russian River waterways, in the reuse and reduction of plant debris, and to support an integrated approach to environmentally-friendly landscaping. The Guidelines were created for landscape professionals in the Russian River region by the RRWA in 2010, with permission and assistance from StopWaste.org in Alameda County.
