How To Have A Nice Lawn Without Chemicals?
The fastest way is not always the right way. That applies for lawn care maintenance as well. It seems like using chemicals is the right way because results are faster, however the fast results don’t really last for long in your lawn and are potentially dangerous as well. I am saying this out of experience in my own lawn and having seen the results in others’. Using chemicals did solve the problem fast and easily, but I and few of my neighbors gradually started seeing the horrors of chemicals on our lawn; dead butterflies and bees started dropping and the land got really dry. It took more than a year to restore the quality of the land. Personally, I have found that natural lawn care is always better. And if you don’t know what to do, you can hire professional organic lawn care service providers, organic ways will work just as good as chemical ones. Here are few tips and tricks:
