Yes, homeowners, it’s time to think about your lawn. If you need a big patch for kids and dogs to romp on, make sure they’re not getting a dose of pesticides along with the fresh air.
Here’s a story by the Camera’s Mark Collins on how to take care of your big green expanse.
If you haven’t cut your lawn by now, you’re probably walking through calf-high grass. Spring has sprung, and the following are tips to green up your lawn care habits this year.
When it comes to attacking unwanted weeds, “the sooner the better,” said Brad Wolfe, owner of Boulder’s Organo-Lawn lawn care company. “The longer you wait, the more hardened the weeds get.”
Wolfe’s company is the first in the area to use an organic weed control product, One Earth Weed Control.
Wolfe said Organo-Lawn was instrumental in making the organic clove-based product a selective weed-control product.
“That means it will kill the weeds, but not the grass (upon application),” Wolfe said.
He said the product works quickly on many types of weeds.
“It will kill certain thistle and dandelion in no time,” Wolfe said.
