Healthy Lawns - Hybrid Lawns

Converting our chemically-treated lawns to organic management will have the same impact as converting our gas automobiles to hybrid: Cost savings passed on to consumers and a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
Most lawn mowers run 2 stroke engines which emits far more CO2 than automobiles.
Chemical fertilizers (we are currently using over 14 million tons on turf) are petroleum based. The amount of Co2 emitted during the production,transportation and mechanical application is staggering. All for the sake of aesthetics.
And the ripple effects go even further. Borrowing from the European custom of using composted kitchen scraps as fertilizer in lieu of chemical fertilizers, we restore soil health and the health of our lawn systems and waterways.
