 Lawn and Garden Care in an Urban Watershed in the Advent of Climate Change

Many gardeners already see evidence of global warming in their own
backyards. Summers are getting hotter, and generally milder winters mean
plant hardiness zones are shifting. These changes can make planning your
garden—which plants to choose, how soon to put new seedlings in the ground,
and when to harvest vegetables—more of a challenge. While a longer growing
season will benefit some gardeners, climate disruption is also projected to
increase the frequency and severity of extreme weather (for example,
droughts, floods) and to benefit some pests and weeds, which will further
challenge the ability of gardeners (and farmers) to grow plants
successfully.
