View free video clips on yard topics like renovating the lawn, getting rid of weeds and making compost at a Web site run by King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks (http://dnr.metrokc.gov/wlr/pi/yardtalk/index.htm). The clips are short and informative and you can view them in your bathrobe in front of the home computer. The clips are episodes of Yard Talk, which airs on King County Television.
The site also has a native plant finder tool that searches for plants based on their characteristics and ideal growing conditions. You can generate a custom plant list you can save or print to take shopping (http://dnr.metrokc.gov/wlr/pi/go-native/index.aspx).
