The Town of Ocean City is offering a mini-grant for the Bayscape Planting Program, which offers native plant material to homeowners to build a “Bayscape garden” on their property.
Residents and property owners who would like to save time and money on their yard, while improving water quality and habitat for wildlife, are encouraged to plant a BayScape garden.
Bayscapes use native plants to provide habitat for local and migratory animals, improve water quality, and reduce the need for chemical pesticides and herbicides. In addition, BayScaping is valuable for the gardener or landowner because it offers greater visual interest than lawn, reduces the time and expense of mowing, watering, fertilizing and treating lawn and garden areas.
The 2013 Bayscape Planting Program is available to all homeowners or condominium associations located within the corporate limits of the Town of Ocean City. Applications will be accepted starting March 25; the deadline for applicants is April 19.
