6. Pesticides & Herbicides
Did you know that mulching the leaves with your lawn mower in the fall provides excellent nutrients for your lawn and garden? It’ll save your back from raking or your neighbors’ ears from all the leaf blowing and it’s an easy way to promote a healthy lawn and garden without having to apply any chemicals (or money, or much effort).
Also, did you know that dandelions and clover are excellent early pollinating plants for our very hungry native pollinators? What is a "weed" anyway? They are not necessarily all "bad."
A green lawn doesn’t really need to be all grass, which is an empty green desert that holds no value - well, except for the landscaper.
