If you have a lawn care service

"
You can have a beautiful green lawn without pesticides!
"
Specify mowing high (at 3-4") with sharp blades.
"
Request products like corn gluten, slow-release or organic fertilizers, or compost.
"
Refuse routine applications of pesticides and weed & feed products. Weed and feed products contain pesticides.
"
Beware if a lawn service tells you a chemical application is safe. USEPA regulations prohibit such a claim, even if the product is used as directed.
"
Never allow unidentified products to be used on your lawn. Request safety information and read it before application. For pesticide fact sheets: http://www.npic.orst.edu/npicfact.htm
"
Chemicals listed as inert ingredients can be highly toxic and are unregulated.
"
Many pesticides persist in soils and lawns long after the posted re-entry time of 24 to 72 hours.
"
Ask for an organic program and know that it can take up to 3 years to fully re-establish your lawn this way.
