Let's start with a few simple facts. One gas powered lawnmower can put out more CO2 than six automobiles. Overwatering a lawn is wasteful and actually harms the grass. More fertilizers are detrimental to your pet and children. Pesticides kill the good bugs that we really want to keep around, and we have only started the things that a Green lawn care service should know.
Most lawn services got into it because it was an easy business to start. There was little knowledge beyond how to maintenance and operate the equipment. Your lawn service may cut the grass too short in the dry season, not know how to recover a stressed lawn, or understand the meaning of xeriscaping.
Like some many things we take for granted, the lawn is part of our business and family obligations and there are some serious repercussions for the classic mistakes being made. It may all start with the wrong choice of grass and plants. Poorly chosen plants are more susceptible to disease and must be watered, fertilized, and treated with pesticides.
These pesticides come into the house with your pets and children. In fact 30 days after fertilizing or spreading pesticides, there may be more fertilizer in your carpet than on the grass. The fact, is a healthy lawn does not include unhealthy lawn care practices.

What the lawn care people learn will revolutionize their service. Green lawn care is not more expensive, creates a great lawn and landscaping impact, and will not harm the workers or the people living in the service area. There is so much more to a green lawn than mowing it once a week and fertilizing it twice a year.
Green Lawncare certification is a great way to improve the level of service for any lawn care service. [http://ecoeducationcenter.org]
