Lawn Chemicals Can Be Harmful
Lawn fertilization has become a billion dollar industry in our country. Perhaps to the point that businesses put chemicals on your lawn not for your turf's sake, but for the sake of payroll, taxes, insurance, vehicle payments, and their corporate bottom line. Just for fun, ask your provider what chemicals he is putting on your lawn, and look it up on the web...Virtually all of these chemicals are harmful so why not use some more discretion?
The most responsible turf managers in the world come from the golf course industry. Your local club probably doesn't put chemicals on the fairways simply because of the date on the calendar. Soil conditions, water table, temperature, grass length and the current health of the turf are considered before any applications. NOT ALL GRASS NEEDS CHEMICALS EVERY 30 DAYS!
Talk to your local course superintendent... He is assuredly a wealth of knowledge and passionate about all things green.
