We have a new plan in place for organic lawn care, thanks largely to our local provider, Jolly Green Planet. Vicki and Becca spent more than an hour with me, teaching me some of the basics of composting and explaining how we can take care of my lawn without poisoning my dogs or the Earth. This has been one of my goals, so I am excited to be finally getting started with it. Jolly Green Planet will be taking care of my whole yard with organic fertilizer, fungus and pest control, pre-emergent weed treatments, and flea control--grass and plants--for less than I was paying for chemical treatments that are harmful to both the Earth and living things. What's not to be excited about that?!
Since Jolly Green Planet is still a local company and not available to serve you all, I'd like to give you some information on organic lawn care products that you can use yourself. Of course, you can Google organic lawn care in your local area and see what you find. This is how I found Jolly Green Planet. Here are a couple of places to get you started:
Let me hear from all you gardeners out there. I'd love to know what you think or hear about your experiences with these products and methods. Hit that COMMENT link below and give me some input. Thanks!
