Healthy soils help create a healthy lawn and keep a healthy environment. As you begin to clean up your yard this spring and apply fertilizers and herbicides, we would like to remind you to be careful for both your own health and the health of the environment. We encourage you to take the time to read lawn care labels and apply these products carefully. Your efforts not only reduce harmful impacts and costs to you, while still maintaining a beautiful, healthy lawn, but also help to reduce the contamination of the environment and local waterbodies. You might find it helpful to use this handy fertilizer calculator to determine the best mix for your yard. Vendors are also increasingly aware of the negative impacts of chemicals on our environment, and have a variety of organic options available; just ask your garden center for more information.
