Myths of lawn care

It seems like most people just tend to do what is "normal" when it comes to taking care of their lawn. We water daily, use the most popular brand of fertilizer (because it is the best), spray the weeds, and mow our grass as low as we can so we don't have to do it again for another week or two.

Why would you do anything different? Being organic and using more sustainable methods are more expensive and much more time consuming. WRONG!

Being sustainable and taking care of your lawn is much easier and less expensive than we could ever imagine! The first and easiest thing to do is to simply mow your lawn at the highest setting. Yes you may have to do this once a week, but you won't have to bag it (the clippings give back natural ingredients to the soil and there won't be many anyways if you are mowing at the highest level), it will help prevent weeds from growing (the height of the blades of grass will help block out the sunlight for the weeds to grow), then with no weeds growing you won't have to spray!

This method is known as organic lawn care for the cheap and lazy. This website will provide much detailed information point you to other organic ways to keep a healthy and sustainable lawn.
