You know what’s really beautiful?
A healthy lawn that’s safe for kids and pets and people to sit on and have a picnic.
A space for playing and lounging.
A lawn that can handle going to sleep a little in the summer’s heat and flourish again in fall’s cool temps.
Not a chemically doused, fertilizer-pumped wastefully-watered monoculture turf lawn.
I’m passionately vocal about this topic because I care about the health of my neighbors, near and far.
I care deeply about the health of our waterways.
The simple truth is that what my neighbors do on their own property doesn’t stay there.
Fertilizer run-off and pesticide drift are real problems.
Weaning a lawn off chemicals takes some time.
And it’s not hard.
The results are worth it.
