Getting Started in Organic Lawn Care

A healthy lawn doesn’t have to include loads of harmful chemicals. Just ask “Organic Bob” Dahm, one of Nine Mile Creek’s Master Water Stewards, who takes a natural approach to lawn care.  Reducing compaction, using organic compost, organic fertilizer, and over seeding are all steps suggested from thirty years of experimenting with organic lawn care. Read the full story at cleanwatermn.org.

Interested in trying natural lawn care for yourself? Dahm and Berg recommend The Organic Lawn Care Manual: A Natural Low-Maintenance System for a Beautiful Lawn by Paul Tukey. You can also register for an Installing Turf Alternatives workshop on October 24, presented by Metro Blooms and Blue Thumb.
