As the snow and ice were melting, it was obvious that there would be soil problems to follow. Ninety percent of rain and snow runoff enters the Chesapeake Bay.

l,.5l Closer to home, it also erodes gardens and lawns carrying soil, fertilizers and chemicals into the water supply.

It's never too late to prevent future problems before the next storm. Spring and soil thaw are just ahead. Trees, shrubs and ground covers planted in your yard will soak up water and nutrients and reduce runoff, especially in what are now bare areas.

For advice on planting, call the Governor's Chesapeake Bay Office, (410) 974-5300 or (410) 454-4848.
