Time for another update on our chemical free-lawn progress.
If you recall, I first wrote about this in May of last year. Our lawn had already been free of chemicals for almost two years but the poor thing was suffering.
Then, about 15 months ago, we hired Garden Holistics to come in and apply some organic magic. I know many people are sceptical about organic solutions but I can tell you from experience, it’s worked really well for us. Here is our lawn today:
It’s not perfect and yes, there are some weeds here and there but it’s healthy, soft, lush and happy like us. Most communities have now followed Collingwood’s lead and banned the use of pesticides and lawn chemicals. Alternatives exist and get better each year. Now, when I see an artificially and perfect bright green lawn free of a single weed, I can’t help but think of how unhealthy it really is. Organic has proven to be more than satisfactory without putting our health at risk.
