Lawn Care


In pursuing an ideal lawn, homeowners have a potent assortment of pesticides and fertilizers from which to choose. Despite best efforts, sometimes a healthy landscape has a need for pest control or fertilizer. Fertilizers and pesticides can be useful tools in maintaining the health and vigor of lawns and landscapes, while protecting plants from harmful pests. A healthy landscape prevents sediment runoff and nutrient leaching, while releasing large amounts of oxygen into the air. However, the improper use of fertilizers and pesticides can seriously impact our water resources, along with plant and animal life.
