A lawn as healthy as it looks

With spring in the air, this week’s Green Home in the New York Times takes a look at ways that will allow you to have the “perfect” lawn without damaging the environment.  In place of traditional lawn fertilizers, which are hazardous to the environment, compost, which can be made or bought, is a greener alternative. Adding lower maintenance grass seeds and clover, along with leaving grass clippings on the lawn, are other suggestions mentioned in the article that will make your yard greener. There are also tips on how to reduce pollution from lawn mowers and treat weeds with organic herbicides.
