Healthy soils mean a heathy lawn and a healthy environment. As spring arrives and you begin cleaning up your yard, be mindful if applying fertilizer and herbicides. Read labels, apply properly, and store chemicals correctly. These efforts not only reduce costs to you while still maintaining a beautiful, healthy lawn, but also reduce the contamination of the environment and local waterbodies. Use this handy fertilizer application calculator to determine the best mix for your yard. And remember, never apply fertilizers or pesticides before a rainstorm!
