Spring landscaping and lawn care tip: One of the upsides of people staying home is that a lot of us are working on our yards. While you’re cleaning up your yard and applying fertilizer and herbicides, be mindful. Read labels, apply properly, and store chemicals correctly. The most environmentally friendly fertilizers are organic, slow release, low-nitrogen types (< 5%), and should not be used within 25 feet of a wetland resource area. These efforts not only reduce costs to you, but avoid contaminating the environment and local waterbodies.
