Why be YardWise - Because it Works!

Would you like a Healthy Beautiful Lawn that saves you money, time, and effort?

Texans spend over $300 million each year to dispose of yard waste in landfills. Billions are spent in total yard care costs: watering, fertilizing, chemicals to combat harmful insects and plant diseases, and professional services.

Planet Earth Cart

The Planet Earth Cart, developed by Keep Sugar Land Beautiful, is a mobile cart stocked with fiction and non fiction books, games, DVDs, and hands on activities that may be incorporated into lesson plans by educators.  Students and teachers in grades k-5 will be able to utilize this environmental educational resource.

Environmental education enables students to understand and appreciate their community. One goal is to increase student awareness and in doing so help them develop habits that will improve and protect our environment. The Planet Earth Carts are sponsored by organizations, businesses, schools, foundations or individuals in partnership with Keep Sugar Land Beautiful.
