Providing a Safe Environment

A safe environment in your garden starts with you being aware of the potential dangers in the garden.  Dangers in the garden are not great if you are aware of them, so Be aware, but not afraid. 

Some potentially dangerous creatures can find their way into your garden and landscape.  You need to be able to recognize these creatures and take measures to avoid contact with them.

Garden tools and power equipment greatly reduce the amount of physical labor needed to prepare and maintain the garden and landscape, but sharp edges and mechanical power can quickly cause injury if tools are not properly used.
