Is Your Yard Jersey-Friendly?

As warmer weather entices us outdoors, we begin thinking about what to plant in our yards or maybe even consider starting a whole new landscaping project.

If your goal is to have a yard that’s beautiful, low-maintenance, and friendly to the environment and wildlife, then look no further than the Barnegat Bay Partnership’s Jersey-Friendly Yards website
for information.

Learn how to start with healthy soil, landscape with native plants, avoid invasive plants, reduce fertilizer and pesticide use, conserve water, provide habitat for wildlife, and much more. Try the site’s “Interactive Yard” and experience the steps to Jersey-Friendly landscaping, search the Plant Database and create a custom plant list for the specific conditions in your yard, and locate nurseries that sell native plants.

A Jersey-Friendly landscape is low-maintenance and friendly to our wallets, saving time and money. It’s also the key to improving water quality in the Barnegat Bay. Stormwater runoff from our yards washes lawn chemicals and other pollutants into our streams and eventually into the bay. Jersey-Friendly yards help by capturing and absorbing more rainwater and reducing pollution at the source, resulting in cleaner water and a healthier environment for everyone in our watershed.

Energy Conservation

The Borough of Seaside Park has recently made great strides in the area of Environmental Stewardship. As one of the newest EnergyStar Paratners, Seaside Park will have access greater access to the resources and skills necessary to drive the community to the forefront of environmental stewardship.

We have joined the national effort of Environmental Sustainability through EnergyStar and Sustainable NJ. If you want more information about these programs please visit or

We look forward to working with our community and our new partners to developing the best programs that will respect the environment, save money, jobs and most importantly improve the area where we live.
