Better Lawn Care is all about growing healthy, eco-friendly lawns that will have your neighbors...
Green with Envy!
We love our lawns! Green, grassy areas improve our quality of life
by linking us to nature and providing spaces for recreation. Lawns
enhance landscape plantings, boost property values and beautify our
neighborhoods. Lawns benefit our environment by filtering dust and
pollution from air and water. In urban settings, green grass improves
living conditions by buffering noise and cooling the air.
Yes, lawns are beneficial to our environment. Therefore, does the lawn care industry deserve the bad reputation dubbed by many conservationists as a waste of water and natural resources? Are our yards a source of fertilizer and pesticide pollution?
We - home owners and professionals - are spending billions of dollars (billions?? Not kidding - lawn care is a multi-billion dollar industry) on tools, services and chemicals. Growing grass that's sub-par...addicted to water and fertilizers.
Don't get me wrong, water and fertilizers are very important to growing healthy grass. The problems result from the misapplication of lawn care products and improper watering.
We need to do a better job of managing our lawns. Lush, green grassy areas are very important to our landscapes, lifestyles and the environment.
