Greening your lawn!


In past posts, we’ve written about reducing your lawn in order to decrease its impact on the environment.  But what about the lawn you want to have?  Do you ever wonder how much fertilizer to put on your lawn?  On the one hand, you want the grass to grow, but on the other, you don’t want excess fertilizer running into the local lakes, rivers, and streams.  Virginia’s Department of Conservation and Recreation has published a “fertilizer calculator” to help you apply the correct amount to your lawn, depending on the species of grass and time of year.  Check it out for a healthy, “green” lawn!
