Toxic chemicals surround us. We envelope ourselves and our children in toxic perfumed laundry detergents; we smear our bodies and hair with untested creams, gels and shampoos. We further damage our health with pesticides used in lawn and garden care, and in agriculture. It is time for legislation to replace the never adequate and very outdated Toxics Substances Control Act. To view each entry, just click on the title or link(s) within each entry.

Rethinking "Lawn Treatment", aka, Toxic Chemical Pesticide Mixes on Condo/Home Association Grounds

On rethinking Grounds Care, especially after years of harmful chemicals.

"Lawn Treatment" is not what it sounds like or appears to be; rather, it is a mix of toxic chemical pesticides that damage our soil, air, water and health. The time has come to rid our land of the conventional, harmful, archaic method in favor of a known SAFE organic approach.

I have spent years learning about transitioning lawns from chemicals to natural. Our lawns easily   improve with better mowing practices but with just a few more, simple changes, the land and lawns could do much much better. One of my suggestions, aerating compacted areas and then fertilizing with a good organic fertilizer (I can recommend one such!), each fall. Also, in the fall, over-seeding with a mix of local grass seed, easily obtainable. Very simple. Right now, the dandelions can be doused with a mix of vinegar and water and kept dead-headed and mown down before the heads go to seed.

Please review these links (below), if you would like to understand why transitioning to natural land care is so important. And, affordable!
