Over last winter AgroLawn participated with the 2011 Fertilizer Act which was recently passed by the Maryland General Assembly. We are pleased by the best practices promoted by this legislation and the positive impact it will have on urban horticulture.
Properly maintained turf offers many key environmental benefits. Thick, healthy lawns absorb rainwater runoff and help keep soil and other pollutants from reaching stormdrains, local streams and other pathways to the Chesapeake Bay.
Sustainability in lawn care means encouraging dense turfgrass growth by applying essential nutrients at recommended rates to minimize material inputs while maximizing environmentally beneficial results. You can be part of the solution of cleaning up the bay by following these important sustainable lawn care practices:
Use phosphorus free fertilizers.
Monitor nutrient levels with periodic soil testing.
Control erosion, thicken turf through aeration with seeding.
Mow at 3" or higher with sharp blade.
Cut no more than 1/3 of grass blade with each mowing.
Recycle grass clippings.
Water deeply and irregularly, morning watering is best.
